Contractor Contractor Mentoring Program

The ASCC is proud to have developed and designed a comprehensive Concrete Contractor Mentoring program to help newer contractors looking for advice. Our concrete contractor mentoring program aims to unite seasoned concrete construction professionals with lesser experienced ASCC members in a guided program to share their valuable industry knowledge and expertise. By partnering pros with those new to the concrete construction industry, the ASCC aims to advance mentee skillsets as well as the entire concrete industry.   

A Mentoring Program to Guide Concrete Contractors

The ASCC Concrete Contractor Mentoring Program is designed exclusively for ASCC members.

The program is driven by enthusiastic and committed participation of ASCC member mentors who are experienced in a variety of disciplines.

Any ASCC member who wishes to learn from experts in their field may apply to become a mentee. Along with exposure to knowledge that can be used to sharpen their professional skillsets, mentees are also exposed to the mentors’ professional networks to grow their connections to other industry professionals and advance their careers.

ASCC mentors are truly committed to their craft, and have a desire to pass their skills & knowledge on to other ASCC members. This member-to-member connection is what really makes the ASCC concrete contractor mentoring program stand out within the industry.
