ABC-South Texas is a member-lead association governed by various volunteer committees and an elected Board of Directors representing the communities we serve. The following leadership opportunities allow members to expand their role within the association and take part in the decision-making process.


The ABC-South Texas Board of Directors jointly oversees the entire organization. Board members work with the executive committee to set the chapter’s strategic direction and ensure business efficiency and mission alignment. 

The Contractors Apprenticeship Trust (CAT)

The CAT is the 501C-3 arm of the ABC-South Texas Chapter, responsible for the construction industry education programs and activities for the merit shop construction industry.  As the CAT does not have the staff, structure and volunteer base to provide construction education activities an agreement was reached with ABC for ABC to provide all construction related activities on behalf of the CAT.  There is a five member board overseeing the agreement between ABC and the CAT to ensure compliance with the agreement.
