"As a specialty contractor, being a member of a vibrant industry association like ABC has been very beneficial to helping grow and improve our business. Our ABC membership has enabled our team to consistently be in front of our clients—not only at social events, but more importantly on committees where efforts are being made to improve our industry. These committees are making constant efforts to develop tomorrow’s workforce, improve industry safety practices, and have an active voice in legislation and the political process. We are consistently recognized for our roles on our most difficult and trying projects by being the recipient of ABC’s “Best in Class” Eagle award on numerous occasions. Also, our involvement at ABC has been recognized by our GC and CM clients, and has supported our efforts to market ourselves more effectively within their organizations.
The results have been the award of numerous new project opportunities that have been very important for our continued growth. It proves the point that people want to do business with people they know and work with. ABC has provided that opportunity for us. Also, ABC is the only industry organization where a specialty contractor, vendor, or industry service provider can participate at any level in the organization they desire. Each member firm has the same clout in voice, voting, and governance if they so elect to be an active member.
With these and the other benefits of an ABC membership, it is very easy for me to say that ABC is the "Industry Association of Choice for Our Firm.” Simply put, there is no other construction association that supports our industry and its members better than ABC."
