Why Membership of SLC3?
Membership in a construction association holds significant importance, especially in a dynamic and evolving industry like construction. The SLC3’ four key pillars of innovation, continuing education, equity empowerment, and collaboration brings about numerous benefits, particularly for the St. Louis Bi-State region. Let’s delve into the importance of each of these aspects:
Technological Advancements: Construction associations often serve as hubs for sharing information on the latest technological innovations. Being a member allows access to cutting-edge tools, methods, and materials that can enhance project efficiency and quality.
Best Practices: Networking with other members provides opportunities to learn about successful innovations and best practices in construction. This knowledge can be applied to projects in the St. Louis Bi-State region, fostering growth and advancement.
Professional Development: Construction associations offer workshops, seminars, and training programs that contribute to the ongoing education and professional development of their members. Staying updated on industry trends and regulations is crucial for effective project management.
Skill Enhancement: Ongoing education helps members acquire new skills and stay abreast of changes in construction methods and technologies, ensuring they are well-equipped to handle diverse projects.
Diversity and Inclusion: Construction associations that prioritize equity empowerment contribute to a more diverse and inclusive industry. This creates opportunities for underrepresented groups and fosters a work environment that reflects the broader community, including the St. Louis Bi-State region.
Community Engagement: Memberships that promote equity can lead to community outreach and engagement programs, creating a positive impact on local communities and strengthening the industry’s social responsibility.

Educating and involving consumers in providing direction, support and leadership to our associate members ensures that projects align with their needs and expectations.
Change Makers: Memberships can encourage a proactive approach to change. As an owner’s construction council, we can serve as a platform for advocating for industry improvements, policy changes, and sustainable practices.
Being a part of a construction association in the St. Louis Bi-State region can contribute significantly to the success of projects. The emphasis on innovation, continuing education, equity empowerment, collaboration, consumer leadership, and being change-makers positions members to navigate challenges effectively and contribute to the positive development of the construction industry in the region.
