Member Peer Groups

ABC National is currently developing new peer groups for members on our peer group waiting list. The list below describes the members we are seeking. The three main criteria for matching groups are: trade, volume (ranges are listed below) and geographic area of work.If you could recommend any members that fit this criteria, email Betsy Strock at strock@abc.org with their contact information. Or you can direct them to the website to complete the online profile form. While there are no fees to participate in this program, we ask that anyone who completes the profile form be committed to the process of joining a group.

Trade Annual volume Geographic areas
Electrical Less than $15 million All areas could be considered
Electrical Over $50 million NOT Alabama, Pennsylvania, California, Colorado
General contractor $20-50 million NOT Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky, Wisconsin, or Kansas
Steel Less than $10 million All areas could be considered
Wastewater Facilities Any size NOT Mid-West, Carolinas, Northern California

ABC’s peer groups offer like-minded business owners an environment conducive to sharing ideas and discussing business opportunities and challenges–all with the goal of improving their businesses. Peer groups consist of six to 10 ABC member companies within a trade or interest area and with similar annual revenues. Members in the same peer group do not operate in the same competitive market, which fosters trust and an open exchange of information.
