The CAWV is the state chapter of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA). Founded in 1923, the association serves contractors who perform commercial building, utility, industrial, highway and heavy construction throughout the state of West Virginia. The CAWV represents nearly 500 construction-industry businesses.


AGC and ARTBA work on a national level to affect legislation that will have a positive impact on the nation’s construction industry. The CAWV does the same on the state level. Whether by ensuring the appropriateness of government regulations, increasing or maintaining funding levels, or building relationships with federal contracting agencies, the associations’ work is focused on establishing and maintaining a healthy construction industry.


Joining the CAWV gives your company a chance to get involved in an organization that works every day to make the construction industry strong. Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Every man owes a part of his time and money to the business or industry in which he is engaged…” If you are currently not a member of CAWV, join today and help us build a better West Virginia.
