“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.”
—Henry Ford

The Washtenaw County Convention and Visitors Bureau (WCCVB) is incredibly fortunate to have more than 25 years of partnership and collaboration with Washtenaw Community College. Part of that partnership includes WCC hosting two nationally renowned instructor training programs – one in July for the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers (Ironworkers), and the other in August for the United Association of Plumbers, Pipefitters, Sprinkler Fitters, Welders and HVACR Technicians (UA).

Both programs return to our community because they know they are appreciated and embraced for all of the benefits they provide to our economy. They know that the partnership with WCC fosters a climate which produces broad economic success for our community and ensures that their workforce is well prepared for the future. When the UA and Ironworkers recently committed to returning to WCC for years to come, it was a testament of the amazing job done by all. To you, Washtenaw Community College, we say, “Keep Up The Good Work!”
