Building the construction management pipeline.

The ABC National Student Chapter Network (NSCN) is a dynamic group of colleges and universities offering construction-related degree programs nationwide. The network facilitates the interaction of ABC member firms to faculty and college students to provide information and knowledge of the construction industry. At the local level, members are engaged through a variety of industry association and school events, including regular membership meetings, guest speakers, internships, community service projects, fundraisers, career fairs, job site tours, and more.  


The National Student Chapter Network's goal is to study and develop an understanding of the merit shop and free-enterprise philosophies of ABC, as well as the issues important to the construction industry. Through active network involvement, student chapter members are building the construction management pipeline.
