The New Hampshire/Vermont Chapter of Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) recently announced new board of directors leadership.

The board was inducted at the association's annual meeting on Jan. 30. A sold out crowd came out to the event to support the new board and celebrate membership growth in the association and a prosperous year for the industry.

"This year marks the chapter's 35th anniversary," said Will Long, 2020 ABC NH/VT chairman, "During that time, ABC has grown into a leading construction association, representing and working for the best of our industry."

Long noted that the chapter continually evolves to meet the needs of the industry.

"The ABC provides a high-performing self-insured workers' compensation group program for contractors in New Hampshire. I'm pleased to announce the launch of a multi-employer 401(k) to provide further value and benefits for member companies and their employees."

"We are excited to share that 2019 was a year of record growth for the chapter," said Joshua Reap, president and CEO of ABC NH/VT. "Thirty-six companies joined the ABC family in the last 13 months. That is a testament to the value our association delivers for the industry, in Vermont and New Hampshire."

The 13-member ABC board is composed of community leaders from across the region. They represent commercial, industrial, residential and specialty contractors as well as industry-related service firms.
