It's the information I need, available when I need it. What could be better?
Like many other landscape contractors, I started out without a license and wasn't even aware that one was required. It took prompting and assistance from a local nurseryman to move me toward becoming a legitimate, licensed contractor. I'm now into the twenty-fifth year of my contractor career, and I can truthfully say that the knowledge required to attain that license hanging on my wall has played a big role in my success. I know licensure can do the same for others.
CLCA Insurance Solutions has always responded in a very timely, friendly and professional manner to any of my requests for insurance, AND saved me over $300.
We have been using the Flyers Fuel program and it has worked really well for us. It allows us to track fuel by driver and saves us some money! It’s been a great program for our company.
From the networking opportunities in this organization, I’ve gained the collective working knowledge of hundreds of like-minded professionals. I stay up to date on the latest market trends and new products. And, most importantly, I’ve developed friendships that will last a lifetime.
We have a competitor who I have known for years. We do maintenance and construction and he just does construction. Once in a while he’ll get a call for maintenance. He referred us the other day and we ended up picking up an account worth about $1,000 a month. And this was from a referral from a competitor! We don’t all do the same things. It’s been a real plus being a member of CLCA.
The Porter Law Group has been extremely helpful with advice and counsel on a variety of typical concerns for our 30-year-old landscaping business. Our experience with them has been that they are helpful, informed, compassionate, and forthcoming. We highly recommend their services.
We were making some staff changes, and I wanted to be sure I was doing them properly and legally. I contacted CLCA’s HR hotline and they walked me through the process. This CLCA benefit was a great help and ensured that things were handled the right way.
Getting a license helped me win bigger jobs and grow as a company, as well as enjoy all the benefits of CLCA membership.
CLCA’s Water Management Certification Program is very thorough. A good track record with water management produces quantified results, which you can show to clients as proof of their benefits in doing business with you. Water savings is a trend that will impact landscape businesses more and more as time goes on.
