Build Oregon is the ultimate hub for resources and information to inspire the next generation of construction workers. In July, Build Oregon completely rebranded and reevaluated how we, as an industry, can change hearts and minds, reframe how the next generation sees us, and invest in the future construction workforce. With all this in place, an advertising campaign kicked off, and a steady flow of social media content, Build Oregon is a valuable recruitment tool for AGC members.
