The membership committee is dedicated to obtaining and retaining our membership by recruiting new members as well as keeping our current members renewing year after year. Membership committee also assist staff with registrations at our events, this encourages members to meet and greet members. Once a year a “Meet the Generals” event is planned and executed by this committee. This committee is the spoke in the wheel to all of our committees.
The Safety committee consists of safety professionals and consultants, and share best practices, lessons learned, and go on site visits to discuss the safety issues at each site. The committee works to educate the council on any new safety regulations or standards that have changed, as well as helping out with the annual Safety Conference, and promoting the STEP application and awards.
This committee works closely with our legislative director to establish and nurture relationships with local and state legislators, to give the construction industry a voice in Raleigh, Columbia, and Washington. We work together to identify opportunities to increase our PAC participation and revenue, as well as working on our annual ‘Hard Hat Day’ event at the capital in North and South Carolina.

Special Events Committees ( Summer Conference & EIC )
These committees work closely with the ABC Staff to help plan our special annual events. They help staff make decisions, like where the event will be held, what theme we will pick and what speakers to get at theses conferences to make it the best conference yet! These committees are held once a month by conference call.
