MORE MEMBERS, MORE CLOUT! 
As the economy is proving to be somewhat challenging and the political climate continues to change, ABC is fighting even harder to keep bidding free and open so you can fairly and competitively bid on projects. ABC has seen an increase in union attempts to place Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on public works projects, as well as an increase in job targeting on private work. It is imperative, now more than ever, that the merit shop contractors ban together to stop the implementation of PLAs, job targeting and discrimination, so you and all merit shop contractors can bid competitively. The more members ABC has supporting us, the more clout we will wield in all areas of the state and the stronger and more effective we will be in keeping this an open bidding environment. We need YOU to be a part of the revolution.

Course Outline: The training of project leaders in construction is critical to getting jobs built on time and within budget while maintaining client relationships for the long term. This Project Leadership Development Program was developed to address the specific needs of project staff who have great impact on project success. The primary objective is to teach leadership, communication and project management skills in a way that will keep projects moving and build bridges with field staff. Through a combination of educatio n, hands on workshops and self analysis, this six module program will help your project leaders improve their effectiveness both by showing them how to run projects more effectively and by providing them with the tools they need to improve their abilities.
