Construction contractor organizations promote the construction industry, protect the interests of construction workers, and provide education and support to construction firms and individual contractors. If you own a construction firm, associating with a trade organization can help your reputation and expand your network. There are national and international construction contractor organizations. Some are general membership associations that are open to anyone in the industry. Others are specialty associations that cater to particular types of construction work, such as roofing or home building.
The main trade organization for the construction industry in the U.S. is the Associated General Contractors of America. This organization has a membership of over 30,000 construction firms. Associated Builders and Contractors is another national organization with general membership. To position your business to capitalize on a larger network, you can also join specialty construction contractor organizations, such as the National Roofing Contractors Association or the National Electrical Contractors Association.
If your business has international aspirations, you can investigate the Confederation of International Contractors Association. There are national construction contractor organizations in most countries. In some areas of the world, the contractors in multiple countries work together in a multinational federation.
