Certain professions require a human element that cannot be completely replaced with technology; nursing, especially, comes to mind. Nurses are in high-demand both statewide and nationally. Community colleges and universities throughout Alabama have enhanced their programs to try to fill the labor shortage.
Recently the Alabama Retail Association explained to us the significance of the economic impact of small retailers - especially in small towns that rely on their sales tax base. Retailers employ 1 in 4 of all private sector employees in Alabama, which equates to almost 400,000 Alabama residents.
It is no surprise that truckers are on this list. Distribution and Logistics is one of the state of Alabama's targeted business sectors. Alabama remains a hub for distribution and transportation logistics both nationally and globally. #Our67

The agriculture industry has always been a dominant part of our state's economy. I enjoyed visiting with the St. Clair County Cattlemen's Association.

Scholarships are available now through the Alabama Cattlemen's Association and Alabama Agribusiness Council. Apply by 30 March 2019. #Our67
