ABOUT NUCA of Metro Washington D.C.

NUCA is the National Utility Contractors Association – the leading trade association working solely for the utility construction and excavation industry in the United States.

The Washington DC Chapter was founded in 2012, to bring together the firms that are located in and work in the District of Columbia.

NUCA of Metro  DC’s Mission:    NUCA of Metropolitan Washington DC is a powerful group of contractors, suppliers, engineers, utility owners and supporters, dedicated to promoting the utility contracting and excavation industry through safety, education, advocacy and industry relationships.

NUCA’s nationwide network of state/regional Chapters and member companies represent utility contractors, excavators, suppliers, manufacturers, and other providers in the water, sewer, gas, electric, telecommunications, treatment plant, and excavation industries.

NUCA’s Core Purpose: Improve the operational proficiency and financial performance of its member companies by providing services that focus on shared industry issues. NUCA also works to secure more funding for America’s aging underground infrastructure.

Founded in 1964, NUCA is the driving force for improving conditions in the utility construction and excavation industry, for both open-cut and trenchless contractors.  NUCA is a National organization with chapters nationwide.  See www.nuca.com for more information.

I found [NUCA’s information] to be extremely timely, accurate and very well done. I greatly appreciated their resources in navigating COVID-19   During situations like this pandemic,  a recession or just a work slow down, (not experienced by us so far) Companies think “where do we cut costs?”, and often consider cutting their trade association dues. This is the exact opposite of what we should do. This is the time we need our associations like NUCA most. They are our voice and have our back, speaking stronger in unity to Legislators!

“NUCA of DC has been an invaluable resource during the pandemic. I get regular updates with information I can readily share with our executive team as well as our field resources. I’ve actually saved several of the email updates to refer back to and also attended a very informative webinar that NUCA of DC put together with a partner-member regarding the CARES Act.”

The materials and information provided by NUCA of Metro DC were very helpful in these turbulent times full of ambiguity. Over the last two weeks of March when we were at the heights of lockdown uncertainties, NUCA kept a good handle on the various sources of information and that helped us navigate throughout that period.

I personally received a number of calls from Debora, NUCA of Metro DC’s Executive Director in the early stages of the pandemic following up with updates as regulations were coming out of DC, and providing specifics where we needed more details.   Throughout the first 60 days of the pandemic the onslaught of information/emails  was overwhelming, however the NUCA emails were critical (and not deleted) as they were specifically  speaking to the needs of the utility industry.

What can be accomplished in three short years? If you look at the track record of NUCA of DC, an astounding amount! In the past three years…
