Construction FAQs for Coconut Beach, FL, Industry Professionals

“Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.” – Albert Einstein, German physicist

Since 1968, ABC East Florida has been answering questions, dispelling industry myths, and sharing facts to help our members in Florida and nationwide grow their commercial construction companies.

Is an ABC East Florida membership for an individual or for the company? That is, can more than one employee from the same company attend events and other member opportunities?

ABC East Florida membership is at the company level. When a commercial construction company joins our community, it means that all employees within the company are welcome to attend any and all our nearly 50 business development annual events in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Brevard counties. We believe that all-employee access promotes greater attendance, engagement, and networking opportunities for our corporate members and facilitates business growth.

Do you allow installment payments for membership?

No, we require full membership dues for the year upon joining. However, many new members opt to charge the entire amount of membership dues to a credit card, and then pay the credit card company in installments to offset costs. For new members who use a corporate credit card with points, frequent flyer miles, or other cash-back rewards programs, the extra benefit to this method is that the cardholder will earn card rewards on top of membership resources.

Does ABC East Florida have a member referral service?

If you need a referral for our commercial construction trade association, please contact Jay Sweeney in our regional Coconut Beach headquarters at jsweeney@abceastflorida.com or call (954) 984-0075.

Does ABC East Florida have any ABC-member-only discounts on products and services offered?

Yes, we do! Special member discounts at both the company and employee level are just one of the many benefits to joining our nationwide trade association. To see a full list of discounts from national providers like Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Verizon, Lowe’s, Ford, FedEx, and more, please visit our membership discounts pages for Business Discounts or individual-level Employee Discounts.

How do I get invited to events?

One of our core activities to support the ABC East Florida Mission Statement is to “provide a forum for common exchange and camaraderie through membership, services, and networking.” We do that through numerous events throughout the year aimed at education, industry news, local and national policy, networking, best practices and safety, and so much more.

Depending on the topic and nature of the event, some of these opportunities are open to the general public and some are for ABC East Florida members only. Check out our Calendar for a list of upcoming events in your area.
