“The Best Practices Forums are highly valuable for information sharing that you would not normally have an opportunity to experience. We enjoy the member community that keeps us informed about what other organizations are facing in the local industry. Also, the CGIA Endorsement Program is a great initiative to improve the quality of workforce development in the Gulf Coast area.”
“The Wage Bulletin has become an extremely valuable tool for us in planning capital projects and turnarounds. We look forward to receiving the bulletins twice per year and believe they are a significant CGIA member benefit.”
“At Southern Company, we place great value on the CLMA and Alpha reports that CGIA provides its members. We rely on the information for important strategy guidance and development. Southern Company also considers the workforce development initiatives of CGIA as an important benefit to our company and the communities we serve.”
“Our CGIA Membership has many advantages such as keeping up with work in the area, knowing craft needs, and wage ranges in area. Probably the most beneficial is working with schools and training facilities to understand their needs and identify talent coming out of their programs.”
