Welcome to Associated Builders and Contractors of Rhode Island

Well 2018 has been a very busy year for our Chapter. Our committees have been very active. Our new Chapter President, Maureen Grillo has been with us almost a full year and has taken on the challenge of learning the ropes and meeting our members. She’s already signed up five new members and attended two national ABC conferences and brought back great ideas. Our Strategic Plan set the focus for our Board and Committees:


  Growing and engaging our membership

        Expanding our brand and awareness through marketing

        Providing education and training to our members

        Legislative oversight via our Government Affairs committee.

 We are making strides in all these areas. Our training seminars have been well attended. We have testified on behalf of our members on key legislation. We are represented on the Business Coalition. We’ve added some networking “drinks and appies” evenings in place of the standard dinner meetings for a change of pace. And we helped RICTA celebrate their 25 th Anniversary! And had our most successful golf tournament ever!

Reach out to me anytime. Email: apowers@atseagle.com.

Come join ABC RI Chapter the second Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm. Great speakers and great food. New locations. Check our calendar!
