Mike Boehler talks with Virginia McFarland, Executive Director of ASA Chicago as Virgnia gets ready to kick off the ASA Chicago 2012 Construction Expo & Safety Day
ASA Chicago is an independent, nonprofit trade association representing the subcontracting industry and its affiliates. Servicing union and non-union subcontractor members, trade suppliers and servicers, the group is one of the largest trade associations in the Chicagoland area addressing the business initiatives of the subcontractor.
Particular issues that are of interest include contract clauses, payment terms and government controls. ASA Chicago's membership consists of over 400 members with the majority being subcontractors, and includes suppliers and vendors of products or services to the subcontractor. Their members comprise a large variety of specialties, from excavation to roofing.
ASA Chicago is devoted to providing its members not only education, networking, social and business opportunities, but also government advocacy affecting all subcontractors at the state and local levels. The association publishes three member publications, most notably its quarterly magazine, Construction Connection.
