Divisions and Committees

The CAWV is organized into four divisions: Building, Utility, Highway and Associate. Each division has a chairperson and association leadership rotates to represent each division equally. Division level meetings occur to review the progress and issues being evaluated by committees. Meetings occur at the Annual Meeting held in July and the Midyear Meeting held during the Winter months.

Committee work is the lifeblood of the CAWV. What happens during committee meetings helps to shape the construction industry and the association. Although CAWV members are fierce competitors on bid day, they routinely get together to advance the industry and the state by serving on association committees. In addition, committee meetings are a great way to get to know industry peers. Committee participation allows contractors to share ideas, develop policies and programs and establish valuable contacts with industry leaders and state and federal agencies. 

All CAWV members, and their employees, are invited to participate in any of our committees.
