Committee service at CCA is challenging, rewarding and a fun experience that
helps you, the Association and our industry. It is at the committee level that
policy is drafted and sent to the Board of Directors for consideration and that
Association Directors first serve at the committee level.

will be used on the job and off. It is an opportunity to express your opinions
and offer solutions to the challenges of the construction industry. Committee
service also provides an opportunity to meet and work with others in our
industry-and new friendships are almost always developed.
