Message from the President-CEO ABC Keystone

Did You Know?

By: G. David Sload, President-CEO, ABC Keystone

It’s that time of year when most of you have already renewed your membership. For that we thank you. As such it is our commitment to provide you a value for your investment in your association. Many things ABC can provide may be obvious such as education and training, networking and business development, and workforce development. But there are also the intangibles, the things you can’t touch, such as fighting for your rights at a State and Federal level and promoting free enterprise and the merit shop philosophy.

Did you know there is an entire group of infinity programs that actually might make being an ABC member put cash in your pocket? Some of the programs are as follows: Fuel Program, FedEx, Verizon, Aramark.

These are just a couple of the over 18 programs available. To make it even sweeter, some of these programs can even be offered to employees without a cost to your bottom line.

When we review the data of participating members, we see that many recoup enough savings that it offsets a nice portion of their dues. We also find that less than 20% of our members are participating in these programs. We are not doing a great job in providing this information. As we continue to go through 2023 we will make an effort to highlight a number of the programs individually.

A new program on the horizon is an ABC 401k program. As details become available, we will hold education seminars for the members. This program will help the small and mid-sized contractors that find they either don’t have the time or can’t afford to get a program up and running. For the larger contractor, there is also potential to save when it comes to administration and auditing.
As with all the services we provide, if you need help or are unsure of where to start, reach out to our member services team. If you didn’t before, hopefully you now know being a member of ABC can help your bottom line.
