Attention Rockford-Area Contractors! 


On Wednesday, August 16, FCAI will host their annual Rockford Membership Meeting at the beautiful Prairie Street Brewhouse in Rockford. 

This membership meeting will be particularly important to Rockford-area contractors as the three presenters of the evening play a significant role in the area’s construction climate: the three special guest speakers are Tom McNamara, newly-elected mayor of Rockford; Glen Turpoff, former Executive Director of the Northern Illinois Building Contractors Association (NIBCA); and Jake Castanza, Executive Director of Project First Rate. 


There will also be an important roundtable discussion where contractors are invited to share their opinions, ideas, and concerns on changes they would like to see in the new CBA for 2018. These discussions will be used to formulate a strategy when entering negotiations with PDC #30 early next year. We represent you! Let your voice be heard!   


5:00 p.m. CBA Roundtable Discussion - Newly Added!
5:30 p.m. Cocktail Reception
6:15 p.m. Dinner
