Associated Builders and Contractors

Associated Builders and Contractors

Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national construction industry trade association representing more than 21,000 members. ABC and its 70 chapters help members develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work. ABC’s membership represents all specialties within the US construction industry and is comprised primarily of firms that perform work in the industrial and commercial sectors.

At ABC, we believe in building people through the merit shop philosophy: that projects and personal advancement should be awarded based on performance, skill, and achievement. As a respected national association, we’ve been setting the standard for safety, quality, and integrity in the construction industry since 1950 — and we’re not about to stop now.

Our flexible, affordable craft and safety training leads to industry-recognized, national credentials for today’s leading construction positions. Together, we help individuals train, transform, and triumph as they pursue meaningful careers that advance their potential and build strong communities. To learn more, visit
