"NUCA brings tremendous value to a company of any size! Anyone can benefit from the tremendous safety resources, the discounts on business essentials, and the opportunities to network with both industry peers and even regulators in low-pressure environments. All of these values, coupled with the incredible people that make up the organization, are the reason I have been a NUCA supporter since 2013!"

"The materials and information provided by NUCA of Metro DC were very helpful in these turbulent times full of ambiguity. Over the last two weeks of March [2020] when we were at the heights of lockdown uncertainties, NUCA kept a good handle on the various sources of information and that helped us navigate throughout that period."

I do appreciate what you and NUCA are doing to help with keeping up with the ever changing information. I am receiving the notifications that NUCA is providing and they are very helpful. Keeping updated is so important.

I find all of the information coming out of NUCA extremely helpful during these turbid times.

One of the most valuable traits NUCA possesses is helping companies of all sizes improve their safety program. NUCA also understands the importance of workforce development and helping our young men and women grow to become strong company leaders. Members can serve in any capacity they desire - from simply attending social events, joining a committee, or even serving on the board. NUCA works closely with strong company leaders across the state who share a common goal. These are just a few of the reasons our company joined and why I recommend that other companies do the same."

My company is a member or supporter of more than 20 trade associations across the state. Half of those associations cater to groups whose work involves excavation, and they do a great job of representing their members, but they can't offer me a direct connection to the folks whose entire business is moving dirt and digging ditches. NUCA of Middle Tennessee has quickly grown to fill that niche with a combination of local expertise and national resources. I now have the opportunity to support and build relationships with the contractors I need to reach, and they have a voice they've never had before in Tennessee."
