Associate Membership is open to any company looking to do business with contracting firms. Whether you are a law firm, supplier, or marketing company -- membership has its benefits!
Associate members are invited to attend events and educational programs throughout the year. This is not only a great opportunity to learn new, valuable information but an opportunity to network with contractors (firm principals, project managers, estimators and other key staff) and improve and increase irreplaceable business relationships. Another great way to get in front of our contractors would be for you or someone from your firm to present on a topic of interest at one of our seminars.
Associates are also the first to receive valuable sponsorship opportunities for events like our Charity Golf Outing, Sporting Clays Outing and Holiday Party. In addition, our Industry Night & Trade Show includes a great expo, dinner and a fun "themed" event. Associates are invited to bring four company representatives (at no cost), host a table-top display, network with contractors, enjoy a great dinner, and celebrate the theme of the evening.
Associates experience the “spotlight” when we profile you in our bi-monthly electronic newsletter, Nuts & Bolts. The newsletter is distributed to our entire membership and other industry representatives. We select an associate member to "spotlight" in every issue. We spotlight your products and services, attach a link to your website, or can even talk about an upcoming event or product launch!
Additionally, you might consider submitting an article for the newsletter. For example, it could be about key legal topics, safety issues or more profitable ways to run a business -- things that you think would be of interest to our contractors. This would be a great way for you to take advantage of your Associate membership and get some increased exposure to our contractors.
To become an Associate Member, you must complete the Membership Application Form which is reviewed by the Board of Directors. Once approved, you will begin reaping the benefits of membership immediately!
