Industry Relations

Construction Week is an awareness campaign designed to expose more individuals in our communities to the realities of construction as a safe, exciting and rewarding career option.  There are a lot of misconceptions out there about the industry and Construction Week is another way for us to join forces as an industry in order to educate people about the opportunities for great careers in construction.  It is also an opportunity to celebrate the workforce and point out that – WE BUILT everything around you – while we have a more captive audience.

The Master Builders of Iowa’s Articles of Incorporation state in part that the purpose of the Association is “to promote and establish fair dealings and equitable relations between contractors engaged in building construction and between owners, engineers, architects, subcontractors, labor and the general public”.  For many years the Industry relations activities of the Association were facilitated through an Industry Relations Committee comprised of Regular and Associate members.  In 2004, the Industry Relations Committee gave way two new and distinct groups that carry on much of the industry relations activities for the Association.  

Industry relations continue to be a top priority of the Association and the Association is always looking for new and different ways to work with a variety of industry groups to advance the vision and mission of the Association.  MBI representatives do an excellent of representing the contractor’s point of view on issues that can have an impact on profitability and fair dealings between MBI members, owners and design professionals.
