Our membership numbers have been on the rise in recent years. As a result, we were able to establish MAP, the Gould is educating a record number of students, and we have been successful at both advocating for our priorities on Beacon Hill and stopping harmful legislation.
But these are just a few of the benefits member companies enjoy. We offer a multi-employer 401(k) program, assistance on legal matters, a highly-successful Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurance Group and other money-saving insurance options, and discounts on everything from vehicle purchases and gas to telephone services and shipping. And don’t forget opportunities to be recognized for your company’s accomplishments through our Excellence in Construction and Safety, Training and Education Program awards.
We can never rest on our laurels or forget that membership is the foundation of everything our chapter does. Thanks to the hard work of Membership Director Ken Ledwak, participating members and ABC staff, we had another successful membership drive last year, bringing in 30 new members over the two-day drive. Our chapter has grown for six straight years and we have achieved 90 percent retention five years in a row. The success of our annual drive is one of the main reasons we continue to be one of the top chapters in the country in terms of membership.
By redoubling our efforts to maximize membership there is much more we can accomplish in areas ranging from workforce development to our efforts on Beacon Hill and beyond. This year’s membership drive is scheduled for October 24th and 25th at our Woburn offices. If you’d like information on how you can help, even if you can’t make it to Woburn on those days, please contact Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org or (781) 273-0123.
ABC has come a long way in recent years, but it’s just the beginning. The more members we have, the more we can do to help each one.
