NCCER Launches Cornerstone of Craftsmanship Campaign

Wed January 21, 2009 - National Edition

The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) has launched a new marketing campaign to revive the meaning and importance of craftsmanship in the construction industry.

The Cornerstone of Craftsmanship campaign is intended to re-instill pride, professionalism, and respect into the industry and rebuild a prestigious image of craft professionals.

“Our industry was built on the foundation of craftsmanship,” said Don Whyte, NCCER president. “It is pride in craftsmanship that has attracted many generations of workers to follow in their parents’ footsteps. Reviving craftsmanship is crucial to attracting our future workforce.”

The campaign will spotlight craft professionals who embody craftsmanship and demonstrate the qualities that make the construction industry honorable. Individual profiles will be featured in a series of national print ads and on the company Web site to help educate the general public about the many rewarding career paths within construction.

Other components of the campaign include various promotional items such as brochures, hard hat decals, job site banners, and vehicle magnets.
