“Ready access to expertise is the biggest value you get out of being a member of SBCA. You’re just a click, call or meeting away from a lot of knowledge on the majority of topics your business addresses on a daily basis. As SBCA members, we know we have resources when we need them and plenty of opportunity to connect with people who can share their experiences and are willing to help each other along.” – Jack Dermer • American Truss Systems • Houston, Texas

“As we encourage architects and structural engineers to engage in a business partnership with component manufacturers, we’re lucky to have the valuable resources of SBCA to rely on.” – Tim Snyder • Universal Forest Products • Hudson, New York
