The Moncton Northeast Construction Association, established in 1942, is one of New Brunswick’s leading business associations, representing the interests of general contractors, trade and sub contractors and suppliers to the construction industry at the local, provincial and national level. The Association membership includes nearly 300 businesses, mainly operating in eastern New Brunswick from Campbellton to Sackville.
One might ask the question, "Why do so many businesses join the Association?" The answer is simple. By joining MNECA, your firm will be able to take advantage of many "membership only" privileges aimed at improving the efficiency, the visibility and the bottom line of your firm.
The major benefits that motivate firms to become members can be divided in six major categories.
Advocacy/Voice of the Industry Community
We promote the contributions and importance of the construction industry to our economy. We make the views of construction-related firms known to governments, legislators, the media and the public. Membership in the Association allows you to have a voice in this process. The Association is a member of the Construction Association of New Brunswick and the Canadian Construction Association and maintains a relationship with other construction-related associations throughout the Atlantic Region.
As well as providing plans for viewing of all government and many private projects throughout Atlantic Canada, the Association publishes a weekly bulletin which contains vital information such as the tender calling authority, closing dates and times, and addendums/amendments. The Association also provides bidder’s list, planholder lists, low bid and tender award information on all projects. 24-hour access to the facility is also available which allows on-site viewing of plans and specifications at all times. As well, using the CINet database MNECA provides its members internet access to all project information.
Throughout the year MNECA host numerous social functions including monthly dinner meetings, a curling bonspiel and a golf tournament. These events provide members endless networking and educational opportunities. The informal settings of these events encourage easy conversation and exchange of business cards and ideas.
