"Like many contractors, I joined CLCA for the insurance. But unlike most, I am active in CLCA to build my business. My network of CLCA members is a huge source of new business for me. When they get calls for work that isn't in their niche or not located in their geographic area, they often refer the work to me. When possible, I return the favor. Another way I build my business with CLCA is through the public relations that comes from winning chapter and state beautification awards. Customers tell me they like working with a winner."
"CLCA has allowed me to meet more potential customers in a shorter period of time. Without CLCA it would take years to make as many contacts."
"CLCA has offered us the opportunity to network with colleagues, learn from the experiences of others and expand our business in many positive ways."
The California Landscape Contractors Association offers a wide range of programs and services to members of the landscape industry. Whether your firm is a one-person operation or a multi-million dollar company, the benefits of membership will help your business reach its potential.
Take this opportunity to link your future to ours.
We look forward to adding your name and talents to the growing number of professionals represented by the California Landscape Contractors Association.
Thanks to the power of group purchasing, CLCA members enjoy the greatest insurance protection at the lowest possible cost. Our endorsed workers' compensation, general liability, vehicle, loss of earnings, medical, dental and life insurance group plans are structured to meet the special needs of landscape contractors.
Our workers' compensation plans have consistently returned high dividends to policy holders. That's why we have members saying: "Belonging to CLCA doesn't cost — it pays!" MORE >>
Access To Information
How would you like a panel of experts on call, ready and willing to give you sound advice on computers, cost analysis, unions or how best to market your business?
The single, most important benefit any association can offer may be the exchange of information and ideas among peers — done formally through programs such as CLCA's Peer Consulting Service, or informally through local meetings or statewide events. In addition, CLCA keeps legal counselors on call who specialize in license, labor and contracting law. In many cases, legal questions can be referred without a fee.
CLCA members receive special discounts with Construction Preliens & Paperwork, a service that provides the necessary documents to protect construction lien rights.
Members may also access our special Human Resource hotline, and take advantage of our customized employee manuals.
Our comprehensive programs provide you with the skills and information to make your business successful in today's competitive environment. Led by popular experts, CLCA seminars take place locally and in conjunction with statewide meetings. Check out our How To Make Money In A Landscape Business program.
Another professional activity, our Certification Program accredits workers who pass hands-on field tests of landscape skills.
Bringing Contractors & Suppliers Together
CLCA provides numerous opportunities for buyers and sellers of landscape products to informally meet and get acquainted with one another. As Associate Members, suppliers gain access to potential buyers and the opportunity to educate contractors about their latest technologies. MORE >>
