Construction Sector Accord: Time for a step change in the building and construction sector

Since the end of the Global Financial Crisis, the building and construction sector has been seeking better engagement with the Government to address the widespread and systematic issues facing it. The Construction Sector Accord, released in April 2019, provides an opportunity for the sector to address these issues through a partnership with the Government. For its future health and vitality, now is the time for the sector to step up and make the Accord work.

An easy to digest 15 presentation followed by a 25 minute opportunity to pose questions to our topic expert.

RAB CPD points are available to:

  • Registrants who watch the live webinar or
  • Absentee registrants who watch the replay within one week after the live webinar.
