As construction companies have struggled to find their niche and succeed in today’s market so have associations. Gone are days that companies have the leisure to simply renew or join an association that is not providing value and is not relevant to the construction industry. ABC is forced to ensure that we are providing an indisputable value to the construction community in our state and beyond. After exploring this website and getting to know our staff you too will be convinced that ABC is your voice.
ABC of Alabama truly understands that any construction company is only as strong as their workforce. Every statistic that we have gathered clearly shows a huge decline in construction workforce and also clearly documents a shortage for the next 3 to 5 years, this is why you will find workforce development at the forefront of ABC’s agenda. Someone in the state of Alabama clearly must take a leadership role in maneuvering through the various workforce development efforts throughout Alabama and find a solution that works, a solution that produces apprentices and craftsmen for the future. ABC is that Association. Along with the apprenticeship and craft training aspects of workforce development, ABC of Alabama also concentrates on professional management education and an exclusive Future Leaders in Construction (FLIC) program. We encourage you to learn more by browsing this site or contacting our office.
Over the last 3 to 5 years ABC of Alabama has raised their political presence in Alabama. Noted House and Senate members have clearly stated that ABC of Alabama has become the voice for contractors in Montgomery.

As a member you may also choose to receive our weekly legislative briefing while the Alabama Legislature is in session. Whether you choose to access us through the website or through the electronic newsletter you will clearly and quickly learn ABC is the voice for contractors in Montgomery. It seems redundant to say that everyone should get into politics or get out of business but that message has never been more true. Your support of ABC ensures we have everything we need to continue to be your voice.
Aside from governmental affairs and workforce development ABC has truly embraced the concept of safety on the job site. We encourage you to allow your safety professional within your company to become active on ABC’s safety committee.
