Industry Relations

Being involved with local schools is probably the most important part of the entire Construction Week campaign when you consider that the main goal is to educate students, parents, teachers and counselors about the opportunities for great careers in construction after high school graduation.  As a contractor, think of Construction Week as a reminder to get involved with your local school districts, or even a reason to start a program for those of you that are not currently involved with local schools. 

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.
