STA launches fresh effort to build members network.

The Subcontractors Trade Association (STA) is gearing up for its 2012 New Membership Drive, which will run from March 1 through June 30.

The organization is looking to continue building upon its vast network of subcontractors by adding new subcontractors leaders in the business to its membership.

Being a part of the STA offers advantages to New York-based union subcontractors, from increased business opportunities to member services such as legislative advocacy and government agency interaction.

Becoming a member of the STA means joining forces with over 350 of the most prominent players in the industry and forming relationships to harness your business' true potential. By participating in the STA's programs and committees, you can acquire valuable information and assistance to help your business thrive.

With new construction projects announced throughout New York City, the amount of work performed by subcontractors will continue to grow, as will the need for STA services and representation.

The STA represents its members on important City and State-wide boards, task forces and committees, such as the Mayor's Office of Construction, the School Construction Authority and the New York City Housing Authority.

The STA also saves its members money, by reducing workers compensation costs through the largest Safety Group in New York State. By joining the STA, subcontractors can benefit from up front savings as high as 25%, along with additional year end dividends.

The STA provides services to help subcontractors do business more intelligently.

The Business Practice Interchange (BPI) provides STA members with confidential information about general contractors and builder-owners such as individual payment practices, to help members make better informed decisions when seeking business.

STA members also benefit from the coordinated efforts of "Umbrella Actions" which help unpaid subcontractors and suppliers get paid on troubled private projects. Members also have access to the STA's StayAlert Lien Reports, which provide listings of commercial liens filed in the New York City region during the previous month, allowing subcontractors to steer clear of contractors and owner-builders who fail to pay their bills.
