Since its inception in 2009, MCCEI has maintained a strong partnership with the Governor’s Workforce Development Board.

The task forces and initiatives listed below are just some of joint efforts:

  • Advanced Manufacturing and Skilled Trades Taskforce
  • Marketing and Promotion Task Force
  • Youth Apprenticeships
  • Construction Roundtable

ACE MENTOR OF BALTIMORE, INC..

In 2017, MCCEI partnered with ACE Mentor of Baltimore, Inc. and created a jointly funded, full-time position. MCCEI saw a need to increase outreach to area high schools to promote built-environment careers, ACE Baltimore saw the need to grow beyond the limits of what it could do with an all-volunteer effort. Together, the MCCEI/ACE Baltimore partnership is focused on:

  • Expanding ACE participating schools, students and mentors in the Baltimore region.
  • Combining ACE programs with schools that have Construction, Design, and Management, Skills USA or Project Lead The Way curricula.
  • Creating articulations to apprenticeships, community college, and university programs.

TOWSON UNIVERSITY.

Since beginning full-time operations in 2012, MCCEI has been hosted on Towson’s campus and partnered on several initiatives and projects. As a neutral player for built environment programs in Maryland, Towson is an ideal partner on initiatives such as:

  • Website and mapping development.
  • Independent, third-party industry research.
  • Office space, administrative and information technology support.
  • Special event logistics.
  • The BIM Forum and BIM Continuing Education Classes.

MARYLAND STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.
