ASA Leadership Matters
Participate in ASA's Collective Leadership Role in the Commercial Construction Industry
Attending ASA Leadership Events gives you the opportunity to grow the membership and advance the collective voice of the ASA community in the industry through discussions of legislative advocacy issues, industry trends, and association activities, leadership, and finances.
Serving as a volunteer for ASA can expand your business network, boost your leadership skills and confidence, and help the association improve its programs and grow membership. Most people start with committee service before being nominated to the Board of Directors. Committees offer a chance to develop programs that meet the needs of the membership.
Leadership Events and Opportunities
Community Action meetings are held quarterly, with the Annual Meeting in June. The ASA of Baltimore Board of Directors meets on the 2d Tuesday every month, and all committees meet on the 1st Tuesday every month.
Community Action meetings give members and their invited prospective member guests the opportunity to discuss legislative advocacy issues, industry trends, association activities, leadership, and finances.
The Annual Meeting, held each June, features a review of the chapter’s prior year, a peak at the next year, member and volunteer recognition, and a speaker on economic and business issues.
Nominations to the ASA of Baltimore Board of Directors are accepted in March, elections are held in April, and two-year terms begin on July 1. Officer terms are for four years: Secretary, Vice President, President, Immediate Past President, followed by an additional year as Second Past President.
The ASA of Baltimore Young Leaders (BYLders) Committee is for 40-and-under leaders and is responsible for developing and executing quarterly networking events, which typically include fun activities and games. Members also participate in leadership development sessions.
One of ASA’s core roles is to be the voice of the commercial construction industry before government. The Baltimore Chapter supports ASA National’s efforts in Washington, DC, and leads advocacy activities in Annapolis, MD.
The Education Committee develops unique, high-value business education for the membership, including peer-to-peer sharing of knowledge and experiences that can help them manage downside risks and take advantage of business opportunities.
The Marketing Committee helps develop and support ASA’s social media, marketing, design, and communications strategies to support membership marketing efforts to grow the association.
The Golf Committee helps develop and support the annual Charity Golf Outing, which contributes a financial surplus to the association and raises fund for Folds of Honor, a charity that provides scholarships and other assistance to the families of fallen soldiers.
