What is the cost of membership?

For a first time member, basic membership costs just $440.  That includes a $90 initiation fee and $350 for annual dues.  From time to time, we run promotions that may reduce that rate.  Ask your Membership Representative if you qualify.

What do I get with membership?

Receive free assistance with your safety program and further your employees’ professional development with our training & education center.  Topics include OSHA compliance, contract law, and our all-new project management series.  Members receive discounted tuition rates.

Network with your peers

CAM Magazine
Your membership includes a subscription to CAM Magazine – the voice of the construction industry.  Distributed monthly, the magazine highlights projects in the area and provides opportunities for submitting editorial content, advertising, publishing press releases and upcoming events.  In addition, the magazine awards Special Project of the Year.

Cost-Saving Programs
Members are eligible to take part in many of our cost-saving programs, including fuel discounts, office supply savings, Workers’ Compensation Insurance, Construction Federal Credit Union low-interest Visa card, financial planning assistance, and more!

Since this is a Corporate Membership, all employees of the company are eligible for membership discounts.  If your firm takes advantage of all the services CAM has to offer, your annual savings would be enough to pay membership dues for 15 years. Where else do you have the potential annual return of over 1500% on your investment?

Does membership include access to the plan room?

YES!  Members are permitted to visit our plan room during regular business hours and access all of our online project information through our in-house computer terminals.  We also offer print services.

Accessing the Virtual Plan Room Network from the comfort of your home or office is available through a paid subscription.  The cost to subscribe varies based on what kind of access you’re seeking.  Contact a Membership Representative to request a FREE trial of the online plan room.
