We feel like it is important for us to belong to organizations that have a positive impact with this region and with the customers we deal with on a daily basis. We feel strongly about supporting our community and being a part of ABC allows us the opportunity to stay aware of "what's happening" in various industries. The added plus of meeting new people and making not only business relations, but developing new friendships is important too. Thank you

Why should I be a member of the Associated Builders and Contractors?
- I believe whole-heartedly in giving back to the industry in which I have made my livelihood and more so in the philosophy of the ABC. I believe in the system of Free Enterprise.
- I believe that employees and employers should have the right to determine wages and working conditions, through either individual or collective bargaining, as they choose, within the boundaries of the law.
- The friendships and alliances I have made over the years with members of the ABC have been valuable to our company's existence. When overwhelmed by problems facing our business ABC members have offered advice and assistance sharing the wealth of information they have accumulated from their experiences.
- The political voice we have as a united group gives us the ability to fight the activities of special interest and those who do not understand this industry. Membership in the ABC gives our company a voice in the shaping of our industry with local, State and National Government. Alone with out the association our voice is unheard in the political arenas.
- Membership in the ABC is vital to our companies existence. If you are a business owner in the construction industry - you should be a member of the ABC.
