Lift & Move USA Announces 2019 Dates & Locations
(March 13, 2019)
- Lift & Move USA
, a career exploration and outreach event promoting crane, rigging, and transportation operations, announces dates and locations for four events in 2019:
- May 9 - Webster, NY, hosted by Boulter Industrial Contractors and will feature equipment from Clark Rigging & Rental and Silk Road Specialized Transport.
- May 30 - Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, hosted by Matcom and will feature equipment from Anderson Haulage and Ontario-based crane rental firms.
- October 16 - Longview, Texas, hosted by BOSS Crane & Rigging and Bennett International Group.
- November 7 - Houston, Texas, hosted by Liebherr.
Nearly three-fourths of students responding to recent post event surveys are at least moderately likely to consider careers related to this industry after attending an event. Meanwhile, all teacher respondents say they will recommend careers in transportation, crane and rigging to future students.
Key to the success of the program is that students see live equipment demonstrations and hear personal stories from company employees about their own career trajectories as the students rotate through multiple learning stations.
The hands-on career events are geared for students ages 15 and up, and supports local schools providing career and technical education programs. Lift & Move USA is organized by SC&RA, SC&R Foundation, NCCCO and KHL Group. For more information, contact Tracy Bennett
