Join your construction industry peers as we celebrate the industry and raise funds to close the skills gap and attract the next generation of construction professionals!

The Construction Workforce Development Alliance (CWDA) is rallying for the fourth year on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from 4-9 p.m. at the GRCC M-TEC. The Rally will gather together commercial and residential construction industry professionals to celebrate the skilled trades and raise funds to inspire and attract students to the industry.


We welcome back emcee Jeff Striegle, Motor Racing Network (MRN) announcer, to host our event. Grab your craft professionals, project managers, superintendents, office staff, and everyone in between and join the CWDA for an evening of celebration, competition, and laughter. Enjoy great prizes, food, and drinks!

We’ll provide heavy appetizers, beer and wine. We’ll be raffling off a Michigan International Speedway NASCAR package for four valued at $5,000 (or a $3,000 cash buy-out) and cheering on teams in our competition. Attend for an evening of laughter and fun, and to see if Ritsema Associates can uphold their title as Rally Champions!

All proceeds from this event will support the CWDA’s mission of attracting, retaining, and training the next generation in the construction industry. We’ve raised $45,000 over the last three years to support the CWDA JumpStart training program, construction summer camps, MiCareerQuest, and other student outreach activities.
