NSSGA Student Chapters:

Creating a Workforce
Talent Pipeline for the
Aggregates Industry
By Catherine Whalen,
NSSGA Senior Director of Education

IT'S NO SECRET THAT the aggregates
industry workforce is aging and that
rising numbers of skilled workers retiring is leaving a hole that isn't being
filled by new talent. In response to the
looming workforce shortage, NSSGA
supports student chapters at colleges,
universities and technical schools with
quarrying-related programs.
"Working in the aggregates industry
doesn't exactly have the same allure
to young people as tech start-ups,"
said Joel Galassini, chair of NSSGA's

Meetings & Education Committee and
regional president for CEMEX. "Today's
aggregates industry is a lot more hightech than most people realize - and
with aggregates in essentially every
aspect of the built environment, these
are jobs that aren't going away. So student chapters are a way for talented
students to learn about the benefits of
working in our industry and all of the
great opportunities available to them."
