The Associated Builders and Contractors recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the U.S. Veterans Business Alliance that inks a collaboration on expanding the participation of veteran and disable veteran businesses in the industry.

“ABC members are committed to achieving a fully inclusive and culturally competent workforce that is welcoming to all people, where employees and suppliers are limited only by their own potential,” said Michael D. Bellaman, ABC president and CEO.

“Qualified veteran and disabled veteran subcontractors and suppliers provide value to building and construction projects and to the economy as a whole, and we support USVBA’s mission to help them succeed.”

The organizations agreed to:

  • Share information about business opportunities;
  • Help ABC members identify and connect with qualified potential veteran and disabled veteran subcontractors and suppliers;
  • Participate in outreach events sponsored by each organization to promote business opportunities for veteran and disabled veteran businesses;
  • Encourage ABC members to become formal sponsors of the USVBA; and
  • Support expansion of the market for building and construction by cooperating wherever possible.

“USVBA and ABC find mutual purpose in promoting an environment in which fair and open competition enhances veteran and disabled veteran business participation,” said Mike Wray, a USVBA national board member.

“Veterans’ experience in the military prepares them to be smart, capable entrepreneurs, striving to achieve the highest levels of personal and company performance.”
