Why Join as an Associate?

...because it will help your business.

The NSW civil infrastructure industry is still to undergo an unprecedented boom. In February 2020 BIS Oxford Economics forecast that from 2020 a staggering $240 billion will be spent in the NSW civil industry over the next 10 years - a rise of $46 billion on last year's estimate.

They forecast it will increase in size a staggering 38% on top of the current numbers by 2024.

And those numbers do not include the $1 billion of bushfire reconstruction work that is happening.

In the COVID-19 crisis, the NSW and Federal Governments urged the civil construction industry to manage social distancing well so it could remain open. The industry, employing over 200,000 people in NSW directly, is crucial to the economy.

If this is your market, or you see it as an opportunity, then you should be a Member of the NSW industry’s peak body – a privilege which comes with exclusive access to the Contractor Members who are your potential customers.

What is one job, one client, worth to your business?

Can your business afford NOT to be a Member?

THE BENEFITS OF BEING IN THE FAMILY

Connecting your business

Branding your business

Growing your business

Being a part of a membership organisation requires an investment in both dollars and time. You want a return for that investment, and you want to be treated with respect along the way. 

We understand that.

At CCF NSW, our Associate Members are part of the family, and not an add-on that have to be tolerated because of the money you pay.

You provide expert advice to our Members that we cannot. The other Members need you, and they regularly use Membership as a filter to find service providers and suppliers. In short... you help.

Thanks.

"Our Associate family Members are showing to the industry that they are committed to it. They are showing that they are willing to invest by supporting your industry's own peak body. They ask just for the chance to bid for your work, but, I say, consider them differently."
CEO, David Castledine's address to industry, State of the State Luncheon,
26 February 2020

IT'S ALL ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS

Our Contractor Members guard their patronage studiously, and look to form commercial relationships with people and businesses that understand their industry and are willing to support it. In short...they look for people they can trust, and they use networks to do the filtering.

At its most fundamental level, CCF NSW Associate Membership allows you into the family.

CCF NSW events can only be attended if you are a family Member. To advertise with us you must be a Member. To be an annual sponsor you must be a Member.

Associate Membership tells our industry that you are supporting it and that you share the same values. Is that the message your business wants to send your customers and potential customers?

YOU CHOOSE THE SERVICE LEVEL TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS AND BUDGET

Our offerings for Associate Members are based around giving you the flexibility to select the level of service that suits your needs.

If you want the very best exposure, we have a range of Annual Sponsorship options of up to $50,000 for Diamond. These packages are negotiated on a case by case basis however, they all require Premium Associate Membership be in place for at least one year before being considered, and are by invitation.

Our Associate Membership Service Levels are:

  • With our Premium Associate Membership, you achieve a high level of flexibility and considerable volume of output. We will list you on our FaB directory, will have your message and videos distributed for you, and you will be able to deliver a virtual mini-conference. FOR: Digital package, inclusion in FaB; with assisted marketing and brand distribution.
  • Finally, with our entry level, Base Associate Membership, you get entry to our exclusive family of Members. You will be able to network as and with other Members, will be able to attend our Member-only events, and to advertise your business in our publications. FOR: Low cost; can attend Member events; but NO assisted marketing.

ADVERTISING AND SPONSORSHIP

We have an enormous range of advertising and one-off event sponsorship opportunities all designed to give you the flexibility to tailor your marketing investment to your needs and strengths.

We have our high-quality hardcopy CCF NSW Bulletin magazine which goes to 1,500 industry leaders and decision makers across NSW including all our Members, government bodies and all State politicians. Advertising space is available only to Members of the family.

We also run over 50 events a year. Those events offer an opportunity to be sponsored, with a range of values and audience demographic to suit your marketing plans.

BRANDING AND PROMOTION

To maximise the value of your Membership, we recommend you tell the world about it.

We strongly suggest you place your Membership Certificate into your tenders, and that you place the "CCF Member" logo on your website, materials and machines. It sends a strong message.

The logo may only be used while you are a financial Member of CCF NSW.

FEES

The Membership Fee is annual, and your invoice anniversary will always be the date you complete the online application. No service is provided if the invoice is unpaid.

There is no difference in price based on size of business...just on what Service Level you want.

A once-off Induction Fee applies on joining to cover the cost of our CCF NSW Family Member Induction.

This induction ensures you know from the very start of your Membership how to do the things necessary to maximise the value of being in the family. As part of this, a number of key roles within our team will contact you to ensure you have everything set up properly. For example, your Member login details; the contact addresses for your eNews and Bulletin magazine; a snapshot of our upcoming events and how to book; your listing in our Find a Business online directory (Premium); and setting up your video details in Find a Business and scheduling marketing (Premium). The Induction Fee is automatically added to your invoice.

According to our Constitution, these Fees can rise only by a maximum of CPI each year, unless a General Meeting of the Members of CCF NSW vote it so.

FYI: We never discount our Fees. That's because they are great value as they are and, as a not-for-profit organisation 'owned' by our Members, we don't inflate the prices first, so we can then discount them.

TAKE THE NEXT STEP

We understand that joining is a leap of faith. 

You are joining an industry body owned and governed by its Members...established to support you, not generate profits.

But, if you are still unsure, have a listen to some that already have made the leap; check out the 3 minute video at the top of this page. And have a look again at some of the comments of those who have already made the decisions, are reaping the benefits that their competitors are not.

"Being a CCF NSW Member has really assisted us in building a business for us. NSW is a large state and it get us in direct contact with a whole series of Members.
I would certainly recommend the CCF for Associates. It's a great forum; there are great communications; and it's a wonderful way to meet people in our industry."

Sean O'Sullivan, Managing Director

"In my opinion, from the point of view as a supplier, if you are serious about your business, you should sign up to the CCF."

For YOU, Not for Profit

We understand that joining is a bit of a leap of faith. You are hoping, and trusting, that we will do what we say, and that the value is there.

We get that concern.

So, don’t just take our word for it.

Listen to some who have already made the leap…
