The Hill Country Builders Association (HCBA) will launch a National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) student chapter and membership event for Marble Falls High School’s Construction Trades students at the MFHS Auditorium, Thursday, March 3rd, at 10:30 a.m.  The HCBA is partnering with MFISD’s Career and Technology Education (CTE) program to promote workforce ready skills for MFHS construction trades students.

MFHS Construction Trades students will be awarded free memberships to the National Association of Home Builders Thursday so they will be able to access industry training, workshops and job opportunities.

Lorraine Urey, Builders Foundation Trustee from the Texas Association of Builders, will be on hand to outline how the State of Texas is dedicating funds to support Trades Education Programs like the NAHB Student Chapter launching at MFHS Thursday. The HCBA Construction Trades Partnership will make available skilled craftsman who will visit the Construction Trades shop to reinforce key construction skills like framing, roofing, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and green building techniques. In addition to the professional training opportunities, the HCBA is coordinating with member companies to provide building material donations to the MFHS program. MFISD’s Audio/Visual and Aerospace students will also participate in the HCBA collaboration. A/V students will be producing virtual home tours for Parade of Homes Builders and Aerospace students will pilot the CTE’s program’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to capture aerial video for featured Parade of Homes properties.
