AQC Program

Accredited Quality Contractor Program

The Accredited Quality Contractor Program (AQC) provides ABC contractor members with local and national recognition for their efforts in the areas of safety, training, employee benefits and community involvement. Contractors meeting strict criteria in these four areas are awarded AQC status on an annual basis by the association. Contractors that successfully qualify as "Accredited Quality Contractors" are accredited for one year and are entitled to all the privileges of the program during that period. "Accredited Quality Contractors" receive a plaque and other benefits, including:
  • National and local recognition in publications.
  • Authorization to use AQC language in bid documents.
  • Permission to use the AQC logo on letterhead, business cards and jobsite signs.

And much more, "Accredited Quality Contractors" are acknowledged in ABC’s National Membership Directory and Users Guide with the signature "Q", as well as, ABC's on-line referral service!

AQC Pledge
As contractors, we want business owners and the public in general to know that we care about our employees and the communities in which we build, and that we are prepared to demonstrate this concern through our actions. We are proud to be contractors and proud to be an integral part of this great industry. We want our many "publics" to know that we are dedicated to the principles of free enterprise and that we are committed to providing our employees, now and in the future, with the skills they need to work safely and productively on the jobsite.
