    NUCA of the Carolinas is a great group of people with many industry leaders that provide lots of opportunities to learn about the Utility Construction Industry. When we get together as a group all are willing to share our thoughts and best practices we find that work well in our industry. NUCA is the only group I know that focus on underground construction and excavation from water, sewer, gas, etc. NUCA of the Carolinas also has a strong voice at the national level that help represent our interests to make changes that’s best for our industry.

    In 2010 I was given the opportunity to present at the fall conference for NUCA of the Carolinas and was immediately impressed! Having been involved in various construction associations for nearly 20 years, I have not seen an association that is more focused on or responsive to the needs of its members. NUCA of the  Carolinas brings together a group of like minded utility contractors in an effort to improve the efficiency and safety of the industry. As an associate member, I can attend meetings and proudly watch as my clients continue to gain valuable knowledge which allows them to improve their company and the industry. Throughout the years, by attending various meetings, outings and conferences I have grown closer not only to the clients that I serve; I have also developed lasting relationships with other utility contractors and associate members. In an ever changing business environment you can never surround yourself with enough individuals that are just good, hard working people. NUCA of the Carolina provides that opportunity and more.
