There is no extra cost for SCA members to join Generation Next. Generation Next is the under 40 group of the Springfield Contractors Association. They have monthly meetings and invite all SCA members to participate in social events and community service opportunities.
If you have employees that are under the age of 40 and want to get involved in Generation Next or you want to know more about the group, please contact Tim Potthoff at email@example.com anytime.
Are you hiring?
The SCA is discussing hosting a hiring event in partnership with the Missouri Job Center. If there aren’t enough contractors interested, we won’t move forward, so please let Megan know if you would like to be involved.
The event is tentatively scheduled for April 28th from 1-5 p.m. at the Missouri Job Center, 2900 E. Sunshine. We will plan to use their parking lot for an outdoor event but will also have indoor space reserved in case of inclement weather.
Why is the event from 1-5 p.m.?
Because there has been a struggle getting in front of high school students this year with limited or no career day options and Build My Future being cancelled, we are reaching out to area schools to invite seniors who are graduating. We need the event to extend into after school hours to allow them time to attend.
The event will also be promoted to the public for all levels of positions.
Jobs can be posted through the SCA and Missouri Job Center regardless of if you can attend. Email Megan or Dacee if you would like your position posted on the SCA job board here or if you would like to be connected with someone from the Missouri Job Center to post on jobs.mo.gov.
Online Job Board available here.
COVID-19 Vaccine Update
The Missouri Department of Health and Human Services has added Construction to Phase 2 of the vaccine rollout. As of now, Phase 2 is expected to activate on March 29th.

Generation Next Membership Competition
In an effort to boost involvement and help owners and managers get their younger employees involved in the Generation Next group, Gen Next is going to pay the 2022 SCA membership fee for the company that gets the most new members to attend Gen Next monthly meetings in 2021.
Generation Next meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month either in the evening or over lunch. Anyone that is a member of the SCA and is under 40 years old can be a member of Generation Next for no additional cost. New members will be counted at each monthly meeting, and a yearend total will determine which SCA Member Company had the most new members for the year attend.
If you have employees that are under the age of 40 and want to get involved in Generation Next or you want to know more about the group, please contact Tim Potthoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dana Haase at email@example.com anytime.
