Safety Dividend Paying Insurance Program
REMINDER - Register to Attend Your Local Membership Luncheon & Roundtable Session
$100 Visa Gift Card Up for Grabs on MBI's Facebook Page!
We want to remind our members to speak to your insurance agent about the insurance program that is available through United Fire Group (UFG). UFG has written and issued over 140 policies to MBI members and Construction Update Network subscribers, with over $6,311,000 written premium in the program as of June 1, 2017.  Contractors insured in the program are eligible to earn a safety group dividend for their property and casualty lines of insurance (excluding workers compensation). 
All accounts are underwritten on their own merit with specific qualification guidelines. This allows UFG to protect the integrity of the safety group dividend, which can yield better results for contractors.
If you are interested in applying for this insurance program, contact your independent UFG insurance agent and let them know you would like to be considered for the program.
To locate an independent UFG insurance agent near you, visit UFG's Find an Agent locator tool at .  
All membership meetings are scheduled from 12:00 - 1:00 pm and are free for MBI members to attend!
New in 2017, Construction Roundtables will be held following each membership luncheon from 1:30 - 3:30 pm.

MB EYE on the Future - Class of 2018
As has been the case over the last number of years, nominations for the MB EYE on the Future leadership program exceeded what we are able to accommodate in the class. Because of the strong interest in the program and subsequent number of candidates, we rely on a selection committee comprised of industry volunteers to carefully consider each applicant.

We are happy to announce the participants of this year's MB EYE on the Future class!

Social media has taken over our daily lives whether you want to admit it or not, so if you are passionate about this industry, share information about opportunities in construction frequently.  This will lead to your 'friends' and 'followers' being exposed to the opportunities in construction more frequently, which can only help the greater cause of educating our communities about the options for students after high school graduation that don't have to involve a four year degree in order to have a high-paying and rewarding career. An easy way to help spread the word about the often unknown opportunities in construction on social media is by following the 5 social media voices below and sharing their posts with your followers! >>>Read More
