ABC works to anticipate and respond proactively to member needs. As a result, the ABC package of member benefits is constantly evolving and improving.ABC produces a weekly newsletter, the Merit News, that updates members about ABC activities, education and training news, reports on developments in business and government, and other topics that help keep our members informed. We try to keep the newsletter as concise as possible.
ABC organizes regular lunch meetings so members can exchange ideas and learn from experts. Often, the topic of the “learning over lunch” program is prompted by a member expressing a need for industry-specific information.ABC also offers members the ability to participate in state and national safety agreements and award programs that recognize companies for their commitment to excellence. ABC has its own national safety awards program. Members are also eligible to participate in the national safety awards program run by the Construction Users Roundtable.
ABC also has agreements with both the federal and state OSHA, under which qualified companies are exempt from routine OSHA inspections and receive “the benefit of the doubt” in cases where a problem is identified. Additionally, members have the opportunity to participate in ABC’s National Accredited Quality Contractor program.Below you find a non-exhaustive list of the types of membership ABC can off you.
