Goff, 54, has been appointed to a four-year term representing labor. The CAC has 17 members who represent labor, management and the public. They meet quarterly to review policy on apprenticeship, conduct appeal hearings on apprenticeship agreement disputes, regulate new apprenticeship standards for approval and to administer apprenticeship programs.
Goff is the president of Operating Engineers Local #3 in Sacramento, a union of construction equipment operators. He served his own apprenticeship in Texas and had already advanced out of the program when he came to California in 1981. He has been involved in many aspects at the International Union of Operating Engineers Local #3 since 1993, including grievance committee member, dispatcher, business representative, district representative, executive director, treasurer, vice-president and his current role as president.
“Learning while earning; learning by doing,” is the credo of apprenticeship. In 2014, the California Apprenticeship Program will celebrate its 75th anniversary with an induction of the Council into the Apprenticeship Hall of Fame. Apprenticeship programs are found in such skilled trades as barbering, plumbing, cosmetology, firefighting, drywall installation, construction, arson and bomb investigation, roofing, tile setting, water treatment plant operation, marble masonry, electrician, carpet, linoleum and soft tile installation, sound and communication systems installation and many more.
