The quick answer is that we are are a Construction Trade Association serving the St. Louis Bi-State region. We are one of 34 Local User Councils in the United States. Founded in 1971, we were the second LUC to be formed. Local User Councils are Owner or “Consumer” led organizations. Buyers of Design and Construction are the foundation and the leadership of the SLC3.
But, with that said today we are an All-Inclusive AEC Community for Innovation, Continuing Education, Equity Empowerment, and Workforce Collaboration. In addition to the “Owners” or consumers of design and construction services, we offer associate membership. This includes architects, engineers, contractors, construction managers, legal, labor organizations, financial, marketing, information technology and more. We are truly the ONLY organization which brings the entire community under one “roof.” Our focus is to better our region addressing continuing education, bringing innovative technology and processes for better project management, focusing and diversity, equity and inclusion challenges and contributing to empowering change, and of course we MUST all collaborate in order to improve obstacles, processes, health and safety, and our region. We are inclusive of any company or organization interested in the design and construction industry and providing a service or product and to any organization that builds, maintains, renovates or needs consulting services in the AEC industry.
Building a better future by uniting the greater St. Louis region’s design and construction community in achieving innovation, offering advanced education, equity empowerment, and fostering collaboration among all stakeholders.
