LAS VEGAS - Kent Gilchrist, president of Fremont Interiors, Inc., gave a presentation during AWFS 2017 on why the woodworking industry has a shortage of skilled labor that others may not, where to find the talent needed, and how to educate, train and retain existing and future workforce.  

As technology advances and baby boomers retire, these changes will have an effect on workforce. The Woodwork Career Alliance (WCA) of North America is developing a collaborative coalition of industry associations and manufacturing members to address this problem.
