The Builders’ Association is a nonprofit commercial construction trade association serving hundreds of member companies that employ over 25,000 people in mid-America. Founded in 1887, The Builders’ Association has advanced the construction industry by delivering safety, craft and management training; employment, labor and government relations; and construction plans and technology tools.

Four service and training centers operate in Kansas City, Jefferson City and Springfield to serve both union and nonunion member companies and to aid collaboration by connecting passionate people and businesses, with a vision of improving lives through construction.

This is accomplished in several ways, including:

  • 3,000+ safety trainees annually.
  • Community outreach.
  • 1,500+ apprentices in cosponsored programs.
  • Delivery of business education and professional development.
  • Negotiation of 27 collective bargaining agreements. 
  • Coadministration and trustee-appointment authority for 28 fringe funds with over $3 billion in assets.
  • Government relations services at the local and state level, as well as federally through AGC Kansas City, a chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America and the association’s sister organization.
