The members of ACE represent over 1,200 specialty construction contractors employing more than 57,000 employees, and generate annual gross sales of $6.5+ billion.
In early 2008, several major, regional construction associations began gathering to discuss legislative issues that affect the industry. We realized that by combining our efforts, we could affect positive change on behalf of the more than 57,000 professionals employed by our associations’ member contractors.
Today, ACE is a coalition of the premier construction trade associations, allied to create awareness of the value of quality construction. ACE represents subcontracting firms that employ highly skilled technicians for field construction work, and provide those employees with high-value wages, family medical care, retirement plans, and continuing education through workforce development and apprenticeship training programs.
Our mission is to monitor and influence issues that impact subcontractors and specialty trade contractors in the construction industry before all three branches of government within Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC.
Our vision is to be the recognized voice in the construction industry, to communicate our activities to member companies, and establish identity with prospective allies, opponents, and other stakeholders.
