Committee Descriptions

Volunteer Opportunities with ABC

ABC North Florida is looking for volunteers to serve on various committees for 2018. Serving on a committee enables members to play an influential role in shaping the future of the profession and this association. It also provides an excellent opportunity to network with other commercial construction professionals around North Florida. Committee membership is open to associate members; supplier members; general contractor members and lifetime members of ABC in good standing. Most committees usually plan and implement at least one project or program per year and many offer the opportunity to participate in subcommittees to work on specific areas of interest within the committee structure. Committees communicate through one or more meetings and/or conference calls in which members are expected to participate. Committee service opportunities are listed below.
