The Lumber Dealers Association of Connecticut (LDAC) is in the early stages of developing a program with the idea of introducing new people to the Lumber Building Material (LBM) industry. LDAC will partner with members in the training and development of tomorrow’s LBM employees by offering financial assistance in the form of a one-time stipend, up to $2,500.00 to help off-set some of the costs associated with hiring and training.

Ideally, members should seek out individuals looking to enter in the building material industry to fill a specific job requirement who may not otherwise look to our industry for employment.

These individuals could be (however not limited to) high school or college students, trade school students. Members will submit a plan for hire and development of these candidates to LDAC for eligibility of the stipend.

There are limited stipends available. Stipend disbursement will be determined by the association board based on merits of the submitted proposal. Employment proposals will be reviewed within 3-6 weeks of receipt.

This is a brand new program for which LDAC welcomes any comments or suggestions from dealers on how best to promote and administer the program. See below for proposal form, or contact CT Regional Director: Tammy Wandler-Ginexi at: tammy@nrla.org for questions or comments.
