The Woodwork Career Alliance of North America welcomes Bruce Spitz to its board of directors.

Spitz, owner of Classic Millwork & Products of El Paso, Texas, is the immediate past president of the Architectural Woodwork Institute and immediate past chairman of the AWI Quality Certification Corporation. He has also served four years as AWI treasurer and a long list of committees, including chairing the AWI Education Committee.

“As a business owner, I’m concerned about the availability of a skilled workforce for our industry,” Spitz said in a statement. “Through my involvement on the AWI Board, I have had a chance to work with the WCA and watch it develop a credentialing program that can help us develop the next generation of woodworkers.”

“We’re thrilled to have Bruce on the board,” added Scott Nelson, president of the WCA. “He has been supportive of the WCA since the beginning and has created an apprenticeship program for his own business that could be very instructional for a lot of woodworking companies looking for ways to sustain a skilled workforce.”
