Mid-America Regional Council Breaks Ground at Pekin Training Center Annex

No better way to wrap up National Apprenticeship Week last week than our groundbreaking event for a new 15,000 square foot annex at the Mid-America Carpenters Pekin Training Center.

We have the best training program in the country, as our signatory contractors will attest. This new annex will make sure our apprentices and journeymen stay up to date on the latest technology and advancements in our industry, and increase market share for our contractors in Pekin and surrounding communities.

Thanks to Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council EST Gary Perinar, Mid-America Training Program Director Vince Sticca, Pekin Training Director Rob Swegle, the Greater Peoria Contractors and Suppliers Association, the Central Illinois Builders of AGC, and all the other stakeholders who helped make this project a reality.

A special thanks to Pekin Mayor Mark Luft and State Senator Dave Koehler for joining us. We’ll have much more to come!
