Contractors & Suppliers 2018 Dues Paid
As of the printing of this newsletter we have received 71 renewed memberships or new memberships from the following listed companies. New members are listed in bold.

Thank you one and all for your continued support or new support for the MC&MCA. We currently have 54 contractors listed on our website and 44 suppliers/associates. We would like to break 100 members in 2018! We have never done that before. We will need your help to get there. We are looking for a few more contractors, a number of suppliers, and a number of service providers. Service providers were added a couple of years ago and include smaller vendors like trucking companies, cell phone companies, food vendors, consultants, uniform vendors, et cetera - companies that make your company work! Ask them if they would join us for $149 per year and we will promote them in our directory, website and at our meetings.
Once we get to 100 members we will go to press with our 2018 edition of our buyers guide and directory featuring a picture of MC&MCA President Dan Francois of Kraus-Anderson Construction Company!
The board of directors has authorized “free membership” to individual architects and firms! Marketing Director Elena Peltsman continues to meet with big and small firms. We would like to partner in more ways with the architects and engineers that we are meeting and greeting. If an individual joins or a firm joins we will add them to our email newsletter list and add new tabs to include them on our website. New architect and engineer members will be encouraged to join our committees and participate in our Excellence Awards judging. Let us know if you have good architect or engineer contact(s) and we will follow up regarding membership, or better yet please ask them yourself! This is a priority for this year’s board and president.
