“Getting involved with the Rocky Mountain ABC has been incredibly worthwhile not only for me, but for all of the audit, tax, and consulting professionals at EKS&H that serve the construction industry. Participation has provided us access to some of the best information, education, and networking opportunities available anywhere. To say our association with ABC has been valuable, would be an understatement.
   Rocky Mountain ABC provides incredibly valuable information and opportunities to engage with leading contractors and construction experts.
My personal involvement, and that of EKS&H, has proven to be a strategic component of our commitment to serving the industry in this region.
I would recommend anyone interested in learning about leading construction strategies get involved, or increase participation.”

Liz Castro,

“In my experience, the best way to grow your business and further your career is through who you know in the industry. The ABC provides a great platform to network and meet other industry professionals. Getting involved in ABC and an ABC committee is a must for business leaders or those looking to make the next step.”
