The Executive Council on Construction Supply is a private think tank composed of leading independent construction suppliers throughout the U.S. and Canada, plus a select group of manufacturers, wholesalers, and service providers.
We’re not a roundtable; we don’t share financials. Our purpose is to study the marketplace, identify emerging opportunities, and develop strategies to capitalize on them.
Most of our members are market leaders, but size is not a criterion for membership. We simply look for the most forward-thinking, aggressive companies we can find. If they aren’t market leaders now, they will be soon.
WHAT WE DO...
The Executive Council is made up of two working groups. Each group holds a 2-1/2 day annual meeting.
Executive Council on Construction Supply. Current issues and trends, emerging opportunities in the LBM channel, strategies to capitalize on them. Owners, officers, and senior executives; 125 – 140 attendees.
HR Executive Roundtable. Current issues and best practices in human resource management and professional development. HR executives and managers; 25 – 35 attendees.

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY
Regular boom-bust cycles of the latter 20th century have given way to a seemingly intractable imbalance between supply and demand. That has made housing a prime target for equity investors at a time when production is constrained by severe shortages of land and labor.
No one knows how it’ll play out, but the stage is set for radical innovation. To some that’s a threat; to others, an opportunity. If you believe you’re facing the opportunity of a lifetime, you’ll find your peers in the Executive Council on Construction Supply.
