“I think that anyone who attended this conference would have to admit that very honest, and straightforward labor-management dialogue was the driving theme of the conference… And in times such as these, that is exactly what people are looking for in their leaders. What the Ironworkers have clearly set forth is that “activities” should not be mistaken for “results”. The more labor (and management) leaders who embrace this approach, the more market share will directly result.”

The Succession Planning for the Ironworking Industry is for Contractor/Fabricators and Future Leaders and targets the major transition options available including management succession and transferring ownership to the next generation.

Day One: Strategy
Day One of the program includes an overview of ownership transfer and management succession. In this session participants will learn about the effects of inadequate planning and develop strategies to overcome related issues. They will learn how to identify the key stakeholders in their business succession plan and will develop an action plan for achieving goals throughout the process of transition. Participants will learn ways to develop leaders and managers within their company and will explore the role of coaching and mentoring in the development process. They will gain an understanding of the changing roles of the existing and new, emerging leaders.

Day Two: Mechanics
Day Two of the program participants will address valuation of the business and the realities of the buying and selling process based on the current acquisition market, including the impact of being a signatory contractor and the potential unfunded pension liability. They will learn about techniques and different approaches for transferring ownership, including ways corporate structures impact situations. They will also discuss the necessary managerial components of a contingency plan along with consideration of key elements of estate, gift tax, insurance and compensation.
