The Subby Nomination Chair and Committee members are appointed by the President of ASA of Metro Washington. The committee members are carefully selected out of a list of current board members and dedicated ASAMW members, who feel strongly about ensuring the integrity of the awards process and to always promote the organization’s mission of “Better Construction Through Fair Construction.”  All construction subcontracting firms are invited to submit as many nominations as they like for most General Contractor of the Year awards.  The Subby Nomination Committee carefully tabulates the nominations and determines the top nominees for the ballot.  Finally, each ASA of Metro Washington member company has one vote for the winner of the SUBBY AWARD.

TESTIMONIALS:

"Last week while we were running payroll, I was asked about a garnishment situation that we had not faced in the past.  Am I an expert on garnishments? No!  But I am the person in the company who has to solve these problems.  I knew I needed the right answer by someone who was an expert, but I didn’t want to pay for an expert.  Then I remembered a little blurb on ASA National’s website about member benefits.   Did you know that ASA members receive complimentary (that means FREE) human resources services, provided by SESCO Management Consulting, including telephone and email consultation? On Friday I sent them a short e-mail.  On Monday morning I got a detailed response to my issue and an invitation for me to call a VP there if I needed further clarification.   Problem solved.  Thank you SESCO, and thank you ASA."

"We had a client (a design professional) that had not paid us on a small job. They said they had not been paid by their client. After many months of excuses, I called one of the attorneys on the Professional Council list. She wrote a letter to my client. A week later the check was in the mail! When I asked how much I owed her, she said there was no charge."

"A whole bunch of new government regulations came out at one time. We knew they applied to us, but with all the different jurisdictions in the DC area, things overlap and become confusing. Once we figured out the questions we needed to ask, I called one of the law firms on the ASA list. They were really helpful and said they would get back to me in a couple days. Two days later I received answers I could trust."
