Business Practice Interchange (BPI)

Chair: Jim Smith

BPI is a resource like no other. We review General Contractors and Construction Managers (GC/CMs) and their business practices. At our monthly meetings, various GC/CMs who have projects and bidding opportunities in the city and surrounding areas are presented. Our members share information like future projects, ease of projects, management changes, payment terms, change orders, and contracts. In addition, BPI will let SADV members know when payments lengthen or when there’s a risk of not being paid.

There is an opportunity to be part of the BPI Team that helps with immediate inquiries from our members. By email, you would be required to provide quick response to member inquiries that cannot wait until our monthly meetings. The response time is typically a day or two. Then, that information will be shared at the monthly meeting.

Membership & Program Committees

Chair: Bill Hudome

The Development Team focuses on membership growth and retention, plus programs of meetings and events throughout the year. Because the team merges both committees, there is only one meeting for the group. The group meets once every 4-6 weeks depending on schedule and as needs basis. Come with ideas and support for SADV.

Program Committee

Chair: Matt McClatchy

The Program Committee plans and discusses details for monthly meetings, breakfast with benefits topics, guest(s) speakers, educational training ideas, special events, General Contractor profiles, meet-and-greets, professional showcase, golf outings, and any other ideas and concepts for programs for SADV members. Program Committee meetings are part of the Development Team meetings.
