IKORCC Welcomes Area Students

The Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters (IKORCC) recently gave demonstrations and a tour of its Merrillville training center to nearly 800 young people from regional schools at a special open house event. Contractors and other professions talked to the students about what they do and what an individual can expect from a skilled trades career.
