Contractors Advisory Board

Zartman Construction stays on top of national industry trends and best practices.

Through our involvement with the Contractors Advisory Board, we're able to keep up with national trends and best practices in the construction industry. Twice per year, this group meets in person, rotating among the locations of the five members. During this semi-annual meeting, the group provides a peer evaluation of the host contractor and meets to discuss current trends and issues facing their businesses.

In addition to their semi-annual meetings, the Contractors Advisory Board also has monthly calls for a similar, abbreviated discussion.

Since the locations of the group members are so diverse, we are able to gain valuable insight to trends outside of central Pennsylvania, and apply that insight to give our customers the best services and equipment.

About

The Contractors Advisory Board was formed by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). The purpose of the group is to provide resources and support to one another as owners of comparable businesses, not in direct competition with one another. Distance ensures competition is not an issue.
