Join an ABC COMMITTEE, Make Connections and Make a Difference

As an ABC member, you can make decisions influencing the construction industry and help shape ABC policies by being part of a committee.  This is also a great way to develop your leadership skills and gain access to knowledge about the industry, while networking with other industry professionals. The committees work hard and play hard at their meetings and socials.

ABC is currently accepting volunteers for the 2019 committees. For information on volunteering, contact Courtney Hammer at or 412-213-3556.
