ASAM is dedicated to helping trade contractors, suppliers and service providers become more successful through information, education, networking and legislative support.

Members of ASAM are also members of the national American Subcontractors Association (ASA).

Dual membership offers a number of significant benefits to trade contractors and their employees, including representation in Lansing and in our nation’s capital. ASAM has the same functions, goals and values as ASA, and works on behalf of member trade contractors in Michigan.
