I have been involved with the Subcontractors Association of the Delaware Valley since 2001. My involvement is deep-rooted with being on the board and chairing two committees. This association has a tremendous amount to offer its members and associates. Vendors get to network with key subcontractors in the area while subcontractors support each other in various aspects of the construction market. The monthly meetings are an invaluable asset with educational forums and GC/CM presentations. I look forward to our monthly meetings and special events to promote better business practices, networking, and just plain old encouragement with your colleagues. I/We will continue to be active members of the SADV for many years to come!

“Just wanted to congratulate and thank the SADV Organization for a wonderful golf outing yesterday at Jeffersonville. It was my first opportunity at joining the SADV for any of their events and I thought that the support and atmosphere overall was terrific! It’s encouraging to see such overwhelming support from the members and sponsors alike at an event like this. I am hopeful to attend some of the upcoming monthly meetings in the future.
Thanks to you and all of the staff at SADV for a wonderful event including the lunch, dinner and prizes that were offered. I enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of this yearly function and already look forward to participating again next year! ”

“Joining SADV was one of the best choices I have made both for myself and for our business. I believe that business success comes from one’s willingness to learn and try new things and then to share what we learn. It’s in the sharing that we come to understand just how much more we have to learn and in the end we become both better people and better business partners. SADV has a great group of members whose aim to allow open dialogue, educational programs and networking opportunity among subcontractors in various construction trades is the reason I stay involved. Of course the fun we have at the golf outings and other sponsorship events also counts!”

“The Old saying goes…”It’s the best kept secret !”As a vendor of supplies of contractors equipment SADV has helped expand my sales and rentals over the past several years. SADV offers the absolute best networking opportunities with multiple trades of subcontractor’s, GC’s and CM’S along with education meetings and social events throughout the year. If you’re not a member of SADV you are missing out of being a part of the Delaware Valley’s fastest growing membership.”

“The SADV has proven itself to be an outstanding organization to be associated with. My experience over the last three years as a member has been that of a welcoming atmosphere at each and every event held by this group. There are always members willing to introduce each other on social and professional level and for great referrals. I have found that SADV is the perfect way to introduce our company to other subcontractors and general contractors in a very professional way. BPI has been a plus for finding out more about companies that have moved into the area and are requesting quotes. With this info at least you have a starting point to base your decision to quote.”
