I have been a very active member of ABC/CMEF for the last 10 years or so. I believe this organization is the very best construction trade group. They are first class and very professional in all aspects of representing our industry. ABC/CMEF offers many programs we find to be most beneficial to our company. Among these are craft training, professional development training, networking events, and the Political Action Committee. One very tangible asset we have received from our membership in ABC/CMEF is the continual improvement in our Safety programs due to our longtime participation in the STEP program. I believe the STEP program was, and continues to be, the catalyst to achieving true safety excellence for our company.
