Your ASA membership entitles you to all of these benefits and more:
Government Advocacy: Construction generates billions of dollars in revenues every year … and government generates countless regulations and legislation that complicate the business of construction. ASA is YOUR voice in Washington and your state houses. Legislators and decision makers hear ASA on issues that affect business conditions for all subcontractors and suppliers.
Strength in Numbers on Industry Issues: ASA’s powerful voice in the construction industry for 50 years has improved business conditions for subcontractors and suppliers. ASA fights the big battles FOR YOU on issues such as insurance, retainage, standard contract language, prompt payment, bid shopping and more.
Education and Knowledge: The Contractors’ Knowledge Depot on the national ASA site is your source for educational products on contract management, human resources, finances and more. On-demand videos, manuals, audio podcasts and other resources are produced to address issues from the subcontractor/supplier perspective. The Contractors’ Knowledge Bank provides a powerful tool with FREE access to hundreds of documents that cover virtually ALL construction-related topics.
Informative Meetings: ASA meets annually for its national convention, SUBExcel, to provide exceptional learning and networking opportunities to improve your business.
News You Can Use: ASA members receive the monthly educational journal, The Contractor’s Compass, to keep up to date on the latest developments, trends and economic news in the industry. ASA’s weekly e-news bulletin, ASAtoday, gives ASA members the hottest business tips and news from Washington and the construction industry. You get an advantage over your competitors who don’t have ASA on their side.
Membership Directory: All members receive complimentary listings in the national online resource that is made available FREE on the Internet. It is a networking and advertising tool that will give your company extra exposure and visibility to the construction industry.
Human Resources: ASA members receive complimentary human resources services provided by SESCO Management Consulting, including telephone and email consultation, handbook review, and access to the monthly SESCO Report newsletter. SESCO also provides members with a discount on an employee satisfaction survey program.
Office Depot Discount Program: TCA has partnered with Office Depot’s National Commerce Group to provide our members with discounts on almost all products. TCA members receive 15-30% off the top 100 items businesses purchase most and up to 80% on additional business products. In addition to product discounts, our members pay only 2.5 cents for black and white copies, 29 cents for color copies, and receive 40% off finishing services.
Texas Mutual Insurance Company: The program provides for lower workers’ compensation insurance premiums to its subcontractor members through its group purchasing power and premium discounts. The program was developed by subcontractors to benefit subcontractors. In addition to participants being eligible for Texas Mutual Insurance Company’s regular dividend, they are also eligible for the Special TCA group dividend. Coverage can be purchased through the members’ insurance agent.
