GROUP DISSOLVES
(2007-04-05)
(wgvu) - The dissolution of a northern Michigan chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors will add 37 counties to ABC-West Michigan's chapter, executive director John Doherty said.
Due to some unforeseen circumstances, the board decided they'd cease doing business as the northern Michigan chapter, Doherty said. The national association wanted one of the remaining ABC chapters in Michigan to absorb that territory into their existing chapter.
The Grand Rapids-based chapter competed with Saginaw Valley to represent northern Michigan and now must assess the membership situation up north and the logistics of running a larger group.
They were experiencing declining membership up there, Doherty said.
Of the northern chapter's 73 member companies, nine also have relationships with the western chapter, he added, which is now calling all members to assess their interest in maintaining membership. The group plans to meet in June with northern members and have a more definite idea of new support needs by early August, Doherty said.
