Communication, Administration and Advancement

Have you checked out our completely renovated website yet? If not, please do. You will be surprised. It is now dynamic: it is being updated regularly, and it’s interactive – you can register for meetings and activities directly online. is a major line of communication your association is using to keep members informed and current.

Of course, a website is not proactive. You have to go there to get the information you want. To supplement this and to reach out to members often, we’ve begun emailing a WC&C UPDATE each month. This is a short memo containing new and/or expanded information, reminders of upcoming important dates and links to industry articles you may find interesting.  We all receive incredible amounts of email and hardly have time to read it all, but when your UPDATE arrives check it out. It’s quick and easy and may contain valuable information for you. Read More


2014 Has a Nice Ring to it

Although 2013 showed some promise, I never felt it had a good ring to it. Maybe it was just the hangover from super storm Sandy along with the national elections.  We also survived the end of the world predictions by the handful of crazies misinterpreting the Mayan culture.  With that said, it was an interesting year to say the least.
This past year, I believe we have seen a slow but steady improvement in our market place.  Private investments coming into the market increases bidding opportunities which should help bring some balance to our industry.  Other steady developments have been in the residential, healthcare, hospitality, financial, retail and education sectors. However, receivables, change orders and final payments continue to be a challenge.   As 2014 rings in, the industry is set for a boost as optimism over recovery increases.  For more information regarding the 2014 construction forecast please refer to the 12/2/13 issue of Engineering News Record (ENR).
