Here's what our members have to say about the value of their CALPASC membership...
"Besides fighting for trade contractors in politics, the courts, and regulatory matters, CALPASC provides high-quality programs and tangible benefits for my business and staff."
David Brooks - President, Four Corners Concrete Inc.
"No party should be responsible for damages it does not cause! We should continue to spread this simple and fair message with a unified, cohesive voice through CALPASC. We have come a long way, but much work remains to be done."
Tim Taylor - President, Taylor Trim & Supply and Taylor Diversified
"The direct connect we have with CALPASC insight and education keeps my team on the lead lap everyday.”
Dave Keefe - Trilogy Plumbing Inc.
“CALPASC has been a great asset to our company! We appreciate their diverse interest in important topics that they focus on from human resource issues to contract provisions to government legislation. For example, as a subcontractor, we have come a long way with our contract negotiations with the advice from CALPASC. We have taken the situations and recommendations from the seminars that they have provided and used them in our favor. CALPASC has been extremely informative and an excellent resource for us when we need a second opinion on any issue or future concern that we might have.”
Bernadette Gordon - Wirtz Tile & Stone
"...A few of the many benefits we receive include a subcontractor-focused legislative voice in Sacramento; staff and owner education on toppics such as contract language, human resources, finances, accounting, and safety. I am convinced that CALPASC is committed to improving the business climate for all trade contractors."
Rick Mercier - Lucas & Mercier
"With CALPASC I can learn more about industry-wide issues and how to profit from that knowledge."
Scott Smerud - General Counsel, Surecraft Supply, Inc
"We started (CAL)PASC in January of 1999, because the Building Industry Association did not meet all the needs of Trade Contractors, especially when it came to contract negotiations, insurance and protections for Trades in CD lawsuits. We have grown from a small group of companies in San Diego to what we are today, throughout the State of California. We are known now, as the major Trade Association in the State when it comes to Trade Contractor issues. I couldn't be more proud."
Tom Lewis - Principal, Mueller Lewis Concrete
“CALPASC programs and benefits save my company thousands of dollars per year! It pays to be a member and I appreciate everything the association and its providers do for me.”
John Mohns - President, Benchmark Landscape Companies
“The power of trade contractors and suppliers working together against unfair contract language, insurance problems, litigation and all the other influences that adversely affect our businesses, is priceless. My business and professional life have benefited a great deal from my association with this group.”
Gregory Colgate - President, Ancient Art, Inc.
"From an associate's perspective, I have enjoyed the opportunity to get involved and work directly with the business owners. I have found the CALPASC membership to be a great group of people."
Bob Gellman - Director, CBIZ Accounting, Tax & Advisory Services
"I’ve been involved in different trade associations over the past 20+ years. I’ve never seen any trade association accomplish as much legislatively as CALPASC has accomplished in the short amount of time CALPASC has been in existence. What CALPASC has been able to do is truly remarkable."
Marc Kaplan - President, Aspen Insurance Brokers
