The American Subcontractors Association, Inc. (ASA), is an IRS section 501(c)(6) non-profit, national, membership trade association with over 5,000 subcontractors, specialty trade contractors, suppliers and service providers serving the construction industry.
Recognized as “The Voice of Arizona Subcontractors”, ASA is dedicated to improving the business environment for all segments of the construction industry through advocacy, leadership, education and networking. The ideals and beliefs of ASA are ethical and equitable business practices, quality construction, a safe and healthy work environment, integrity and membership diversity.
As a subcontractor advocate, ASA works at both the Federal and State levels to make the changes necessary to protect subcontractor rights with regard to prompt pay, fair procurement policies, harmful indemnity clauses, retention practices, egregious and abusive contract terms, OSHA rules and economic and tax rules, just to name a few.
Established in Arizona in 1984, ASA of Arizona membership provides opportunities for business development, education, information sharing, networking, and access to the latest trends in construction. ASA of Arizona members represent nearly every specialty trade for both commercial and residential construction. Members are also service providers to the subcontracting community such as material suppliers, legal, financial and insurance firms, management and business consultants and more. ASA of Arizona members are both open shop and union, ranging in size from small private companies to large national firms.
“The governmental advocacy that this Association provides is valuable. There isn’t another association, that I am aware of, that “takes up” the subcontractor fight at the legislative level in this state. The most recent efforts in retention reform and risk transfer/indemnification have been crucial for the survival of the subcontractor.”
Jeff Banker, President
“ASA has been a terrific source for education training, offering a wide range of topics that benefits our business operations and staff.”
