They provide support for members to be heard on issues that affect the construction industry. Mason Construction, Inc. has maintained a membership in the ABC Southeast Texas Chapter for many years.
According to ABC’s website:
- ABC is the only national construction management trade association devoted exclusively to promoting and defending the "merit" form of construction.
- ABC is the only construction trade group that represents the entire construction team: general contractors, specialty contractors, suppliers and industry professionals.
- Our mission statement here at ABC is to deliver safe, quality, industrial/construction services, on time, at a competitive rate.
They also have a Lamar University chapter of the organization for students in the Construction Management Student Association. Individuals starting their career in the industry can get involved while they are still earning their degree.
The Associated Builders & Contractors of Southeast Texas also offers training for people in the construction industry. It is valuable to have a training center in our own backyard to allow for easier transportation to and from classes. Some certifications are offered for individuals looking to expand their construction resume.
