Join Us - Become a Member - ICBA

Join us!

Be part of an active and empowered community of more than 4,000 business owners, entrepreneurs, and construction professionals working together to build the open shop construction industry.

Joining ICBA means you become part of a team focused on helping your business succeed.

“Being part of ICBA is like having a couple of extra staff members to help me manage apprenticeship paperwork, health and dental benefit plans, training, networking, wellness, advocacy, and more,” says Chris Gray, president of Connelly Mechanical Ltd. “It’s the best few hundred dollars I spend every year.”

“Every day we help thousands of construction owners, entrepreneurs and construction professionals grow,” says ICBA president Chris Gardner. “Join us, and see how we can help you!”

We provide services that help owners, entrepreneurs and construction professionals thrive, including comprehensive and competitive group health and dental benefit plans and wellness programs; top-notch workforce development and training courses; focused public policy analysis and advocacy; wage and benefit surveys; job boards; apprenticeship support; management training; and much more.

Being a member of ICBA is amazing.  I never knew how much ICBA helped contractors until I started my own business and joined ICBA – the apprenticeship sponsorship, training, benefits and wage and benefit survey are all such a great help.

Support Your Team
