Welcome to the Construction Roundtable of New Jersey

The CRT of NJ has been in existence for more than 50 years and is the only professional organization that focuses on the needs of New Jersey Construction project owners. Our Mission is to make NJ construction more competitive in the national and global marketplace, provide Members with a variety of robust presentations, workshops and forums to both educate and stay current on developing technologies, regulations, legislation, and industry best practices.

CRT of NJ brings together corporations, design firms, contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, professional service firms, trade associations and labor representatives to regularly discuss and better understand how we can collaboratively work together, in a win-win environment, to address and resolve those issues that impede growth and profitability of the construction industry as well as provide a competitive environment for companies to grow and prosper.

2024 Construction Industry Career Day - Tuesday Night, May 28 (3:00-7:00 PM) & Wednesday, May 29, 2024, from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM 

May 28th, 2024 - Tuesday 3:00 - 7:00 PM students are encouraged to attend this portion of the program with their parents.  Community groups and state funded program participants will also be invited, as well as the public.

May 29th, 2024 - Wednesday from 8 AM - 1 PM will be offered to invite high school groups, leaving the decision up to the school district as to the best students that will present engaging questions and expresses sincere interest in the career paths presented by our industry.

The program addresses many industry concerns including workforce development, career awareness and perception.  The way in which we can continue to tackle these problems as a unified front is through participation.

NJ Convention & Expo Center, Edison, NJ (NJ Turnpike Exit 10)

We invite underemployed, unemployed, veterans and those looking for new career options to join us!  High School students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

The Construction Roundtable of New Jersey is happy to support Construction Industry Career Day (CICD)!  CRTNJ is  excited to be part of this incredible program as a sign of a recovering industry ready to once again showcase the opportunities available through a career in construction!

We have been part of this event since the first event in 2001.  In fact, the CRTNJ worked in conjunction with the BCANJ (now ACCNJ) to organize the first event.  Since then, the BCANJ, continued to organize the event and the CRTNJ fully supported it.  The last CICD was held in 2007.  

 This program addresses many industry concerns including workforce development, career awareness, and perception.  The students will also learn about the many professions that make up the construction industry. 

 Since there is no cost for any student, parent or prospective worker to visit the event and learn about our industry, we asked for financial support from our members to help in any way possible. 

 As always, your dedication to CICD is paramount to its success.

Testimonials and Member Profiles

Testimonials:

I am part of Gallagher’s Construction Practice and work closely with contractors and construction businesses.  It is very important to me and my team to stay current on construction news and I joined the Construction Round Table to gain valuable insights.  After a little over a year of participating I highly recommend this association to anyone working in the construction industry and have brought clients to meetings.  The topics that are covered are always interesting, timely and relevant. The members are all true professionals and the meetings provide a great opportunity to meet and speak with industry experts.   Patty and the board have done a great job keeping members engaged and educated on important trends and large local projects.
