Price Kong & Company Volunteers at 20th Annual Arizona Construction Career DayOn Thursday, November 7, 2019, leaders from Price Kong & Co., CPAs volunteered at the 20th Annual Arizona Construction Career Days (www.azccd.com), presented by the Association for Construction Career Development (ACCD). Managing Partner, Ross Dietrich along with Senior Managers Troy Griffith and John Terry, arrived to the event early. They helped prepare, welcome and guide 1,500+ high school students from all over Arizona through the exciting event at the Arizona National Guard Joint Force Headquarters near Papago Park in Phoenix.
This is the largest construction career event in the State. Reaching out to High School students and providing them with hands-on construction experience and career knowledge in an engaging and fun environment. Over the two-day event nearly 3,000 students, teachers and mentors traveled from all over Arizona. Some as much as 300 miles to attend this unique event.
Public-private partnerships remain central to the Construction Career Days concept and to the vision and mission of the ACCD, which is to support the growing need for students, teachers and career counselors to understand the many career opportunities available in the Construction Industry. The ACCD Board and AZCCD is made up entirely of volunteers who all have a passion for the Construction Industry and they want to share it with future construction workers, managers and leaders currently enrolled in Arizona High Schools.
Price Kong is committed to the success and growth of the Arizona Construction Industry. We currently service over 100 construction industry clients and actively participate in 4 construction industry groups.
