Core Values

Nevada Contractors Association members exemplify skill, integrity and responsibility, and the association mirrors these qualities through the range, scope and quality of services it provides.

Representing Over 600 Members

Nevada Contractors Association is one of the largest in the country, representing more than 600 member firms. For several years, the chapter and several affiliate associations have formed mutually beneficial partnerships. National Association of Women in Construction, Construction Financial Management Association and American Society of Professional Estimators have found a strong voice to advocate their concerns while maintaining autonomy.

We’re A Non-Profit Association

Nevada Contractors Association is understandably proud to represent the third-largest industry in Nevada. We are a non-profit association run by contractors for the benefit of its building, heavy highway, heavy industrial, municipal, utility and commercial contractor members.

Nevada Contractors Association is neither pro-union nor anti-union – it’s contractor membership is nearly evenly split; but rather pro-employer. It is a full-service association, providing services that individual companies would find either too expensive or altogether impossible to provide or purchase themselves.

The Largest Industry Specific Association In Nevada

The Nevada Contractors Association is the largest industry specific association in the state of Nevada. Our membership includes construction project owners and developers, general building contractors, general engineering contractors, construction managers, specialty contractors and subcontractors, equipment and material suppliers and professional service firms. We provide services to all construction-related business: large or small, union or non-union; general, sub, supplier or service provider.

Government Relations

Through involvement in the political process at all levels, Nevada Contractors Association and its partnering association members lobby and educate elected and appointed officials with the aim of ensuring the construction industry does not become over-regulated and unduly burdened by government. Active in national, state and local political issues, the Nevada Contractors Association is the recognized authority on matters relating to construction.


The Nevada Contractors Association uses various print and electronic media to promote the association, its members, affiliate associations and the construction industry. The association employs its own monthly e-magazine, Construction Connection, feature stories, news interviews, advertisements and social media to improve the image of the construction industry and demonstrate the value of construction to the national, state and local economy and community. The Nevada Contractors Association also offers the Sponsorship Rewards Program. The program should allow members to: annually budget, sponsor association events, and receive invaluable marketing in the Construction Connection, annual Membership Directory and association website.
