The holidays are a time to count your blessings and give thanks. Membership with the Builders Association of Minnesota is the gift that keeps on giving. Remember to “open” these gifts and take them out for a spin!
Legislative, Regulatory, and Legal Protection
The biggest benefit of membership is representation and protection at the state Capitol, and before regulatory agencies and the courts. Together with your industry peers, your voice is stronger. It’s important to fight for the best building codes and laws possible. Membership means standing shoulder-to-shoulder with your peers to fight for what’s right.
This is a gift that will keep on giving for years to come. Drafted by attorneys that specialize in residential construction, and updated when the law changes, these six members-only contract templates (and one change order) are available in both word and pdf so you can download and edit them right on your computer. These contracts are worth over $10,000. That is a holiday miracle! Members only section - contracts here.
When the government puts out a new code, the language is provided but not the how. Enter BAM. For members-only we put together detailed code guides – written by experts – so you know exactly how to build to the new code. Members only section – code guides here.
An obvious gift of membership is the discounts on stuff you use. Members have access to discounts on fuel at Holiday, office supplies at Office Depot, and a 22% discount on your Verizon plan to name just a few. We have a rebate program that gives you money back and we haven’t even talked about the perks at your local and national associations. These awesome savings can more than pay for your annual membership. Members only – get these sweet discounts now!
The residential construction industry requires special insurance coverage and as a BAM member you have access to high quality, discounted coverage from The Builders Group for workers’ comp, Corporate Four for general liability, and RMC for risk management. Check out our insurance deals here.
BAM membership means information. We make sure you’re in the know and provide details on what’s happening in the industry, the economy, at the Capitol, and right here at BAM. We’re tweeting, blogging, posting on facebook, emailing, writing white papers, and more. Like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, sign up to receive our Blog, and as member you get so much more.
Membership means getting influence, leadership training, political education, and networking. As a member you make decisions about real issues that affect your business. In serving on BAM’s committees you step up as a leader and make decisions for 3,000 member companies. At BAM it’s all about politics and by participating you get in on the action. And of course, BAM committee work and events mean networking with your statewide peers and the opportunity to meet, learn, and grow your business.
One of the most important benefits of builders association membership is banding together with your industry peers across the state to create a strong unified front.
BAM was created in 1974 to be the statewide voice of Minnesota’s builders and remodelers. We represent you and your business at the State’s Capitol, regulatory agencies and courts because industry unity and doing business with members is good business. Together we work to protect your business and bottom line – for a better industry, a better economy, and a better state!
We hope you enjoy the gifts of membership now and in the new year! Happy holidays from all of us at BAM!
