ABC Membership Does Not Cost, It Pays!

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.  For information on ABC’s countless other programs and services, we encourage you to visit ABC National's Membership Page.


Networking
Membership meetings and outings provide many excellent opportunities to network with your peers.  Meetings usually offer presentations on topics pertinent to the construction industry.  Events such as our Texas Hold'em tournament, networking events, national convention, etc., also offer a chance to meet with other ABC members while also having some fun!

Business Development Opportunities
ABC members prefer to do business with other ABC members. Business development opportunities are created through networking with other members and through programs offered by ABC National such as the National online contractor directory - www.findcontractors.com- and the Accredited Quailty Contractor (AQC) program. The Excellence in Construction Awards program and gala recognize the efforts and hard work of members that result in excellent construction projects.

Training and Education
ABC offers overs a ton of educational seminars on craft training, management and safety topics each year, with registration fees that are on average less than half of what other organizations charge for similar courses.  View ABC Nevada's Calendar for upcoming training courses!
