Despite a serious ice and snowstorm, the Construction Association of Michigan (CAM) held its Michigan Construction & Design Tradeshow and 125th annual meeting as planned on Feb. 2 at MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit.

Construction company owners, contractors, suppliers, architects and engineers braved the weather to visit with equipment and materials suppliers and service providers and attend CAMTEC (CAM’s training and education division) classes during the show. Along with introducing CAM’s new board of directors, the 125th Annual Meeting featured CAM Magazine’s Special Issue Awards, Green Building Awards, and Construction Project of the Year Award.

Laying claim as North America’s oldest and largest construction association, CAM, was founded in 1885 as the Builders Exchange of Detroit and Michigan.

CAM, based in Bloomfield Hills, is a not-for-profit organization supported by annual dues and service fees and is governed by an annually elected board of directors comprised of 12 members. The association serves general contractors; specialty/sub-contractors; equipment and material suppliers as well as service providers including design firms and legal and financial institutions.
