Build My Future is a collaborative effort between the Springfield Contractors Association, the City of Springfield’s Department of Workforce Development, the Home Builders Association, the Builders Association, several private companies, several educational institutions, and several unions.

Build My Future invited students from throughout the Ozark Region to learn opportunities associated with construction and business-related trades through a hands-on approach. While attending the exposition, students and teachers participated in a variety of activities such as a welding simulation, brick laying, nail driving, and more while also learning the vast variety of careers connected to the construction industry.

The inaugural event was held on April 12, 2017 at the E*Plex. A video overview is available here. The second annual event will be held on March 28, 2018. If you are interested in being a sponsor or an exhibitor, please contact SCA at 417-862-1313,, or
