The Oregon Building Congress
It is our Mission toPartner with educatiors, industry and government agencies to increase the quality, quantity and diversity of construction applicants.
Why Oregon Building Congress?
The Oregon Building Congress (OBC) was founded to help develop apprenticeship training programs and regulations that were nonexistent in the early times of the Construction Industry. With the help of OBC the industries programs are now regulated and directed by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) in partnership with Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees (JATC) in the construction craft trades. It is the goal of OBC to provide informative information to all students and educators that there are many high paying family wage career opportunities in the field of construction.

OBC provides students with hands on workshops that teach students how to build or create using the math they have been taught. OBC has also been, with support of industry partners a driving force behind the success of the ACE Academy Charter School in Portland’s East County.
If you are interested in the future of tomorrow please consider investing in the Oregon Building Congress cause.
