Eagle Ridge COVID Policies & Procedures

You won't want to miss this year's FIST conference at beautiful Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena, October 4th through October 7th. We are facing a tsunami of challenges in 2020 - Health, Economic & Social changes - that will impact our Industry for years to come.

How do we deal with these?

  • Health crisis demands changes to safety programs, processes, and protocols.
  • Economic crisis demands changes in how we determine labor categories to present our services to end users.
  • Social crisis demands changes in hiring and advancement practices to meaningfully recognize that diversity is an essential business practice, not just an aspiration.


This year's conference will focus on these three challenges and how both Labor & Management need to work together to meet them and secure a sustainable market share for all Signatory Contractors and their employees.

Now more than ever Labor & Management need to collaborate, not negotiate. With that in mind, we invite our Labor Partners to participate again this year. Moderated by Dennis Doran - Instructor, Facilitator & Author - this will be a groundbreaking learning event.

This is a canít miss event! Plan on being at Eagle Ridge Resort October 4th through October 7th.
