Join One Of Our Committees

ABC East Coast Chapter is constantly working to stay up to date on the issues that are important to our members. Our committees help us do just that.

The committees at ABC East Coast Chapter provide us with a plethora of insights and perspectives regarding different issues within the commercial construction industry. These insights and perspectives help give us a better idea of what is important to our members so we can better advocate for them. These committees work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure their voices are heard and to advocate on behalf of their other members. Some of our members even work with state legislators to make sure that our concerns are heard within our government.

We have a wide range of different committees that focus on various topics. We are sure you’ll be able to find one that focuses on an issue that you feel passionate about.
