The SLCCC has 2 types of members.

Owner membership is open to any individual, proprietorship, partnership, public entity or corporation who now or has been a significant user of design and construction or maintenance services.  Each Owner member has one seat on the Board.

Associate membership is open to any individual or organization not qualifying as an Owner member but having an interest in design and construction. This may include contractors, architects, engineers, law firms, accounting firms, IT companies, or other suppliers and organizations who support the efforts of the Council. Associate members have no voting power but participate actively in the programs and services of the organization.

Sustaining Owners have a major presence and historically perform significant amounts of construction work or voluntarily agree to support the organization at a higher level including Executive leadership and multiple committee involvement.

Corporate Owners are private, nonprofit, institutional, or other Owners whose revenues are not publicly funded.

Public Owners are organizations that have a majority of their revenue publicly supported.

Specific benefits to each member is the number of complimentary registrations for our programs.

The SLCCC provides networking between Owners, contractors, and design professionals as well as others working in the industry. The organization also provides cutting-edge and state-of-the-art education and training programs about construction industry best practices, project delivery, safety and substance abuse, diversity and inclusion, construction programs, economic and industry forecasts, technology, professional development and other topics that support achievement of best value in project delivery.

Education and training programs are offered at least monthly. In addition, the Council hosts major events to promote industry networking, including our annual Golf Tournament, Awards Program, and Sporting Clays event.

Programs and networking opportunities are open to both members and non-members, but non-members pay a premium to register.

The SLCCC has several committees in which members can participate, both to support Council efforts and to enhance networking and connections within the industry.  Our more active committees include:

  • Annual Best Practices/Diversity Awards
  • Sporting Clays
  • Diversity
  • Golf
  • Membership
  • Safety and Substance Abuse
  • Technology
  • Training & Education
  • Work Force

In addition, the Council develops working task groups for specific programs and activities. Interested in a committee please contact Kelly Jackson, Executive Director at 636-394-6200. All members are welcome to join any of our committees and can join at any time in the year. Training and Education members are asked to serve more than one year due to the level of commitment needed for participation.

SLCCC members can contact the Council office at info@slccc.net or 636-394-6200 to indicate in which committee they wish to participate.

Although we provide the listing of member organizations, the SLCCC does not share lists of the member contacts.

SLCCC seeks to satisfy accreditation requirements for education programs.  Most programs are designed to permit attendees to qualify for Professional Development Hours (PDH) for Professional Engineers under Missouri statutes and Learning Units (LU) through the American Institute of Architects.  Safety-related programs are designed to satisfy the requirements for certification or re-certification through the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP).  The Council provides documentation that individuals can use for self-certification for their participation. Documentation is available at the programs and through the web site.

The Council shares information on legislative and regulatory issues that permits members to use as resources for their own advocacy efforts.
