Why Should You Join NESCA
Lien Filing Service
Members of NESCA are entitled to have up to three liens per (fiscal) year filed by NESCA absolutely free of charge. This includes the cost of all filing fees, postage and administrative expense.
Each month, NESCA sends members a list of all liens NESCA has filed on behalf of members during the preceding month.
Business Practices Interchange
The Business Practices Interchange (BPI) allows members to obtain accurate, first-hand information on the business practices of general contractors, developers and owner-builders. Each year NESCA asks members to provide us with the names of contractors they have done business with during the preceding twelve months. This information is then entered into NESCA's database. Members seeking information about a particular contractor may then call the NESCA office and receive the names of other members who have recently done business with that company. By contacting fellow members directly, members can receive solid, valuable, first-hand information which helps them to make intelligent choices as to who they elect to do business with.
Worker's Compensation Safety Group
The Empire State Subcontrators Association (ESSA) Workers' Compenssation Safety Group #560 was formed so that NESCA members can take advantage of the safety group concept to reduce premiums and to have access to professional loss control services and claims management services, the cost of which can be enormous for an individual firm to undertake on its own..Safety and claims management services combined with upfront discounts and year-end dividends can offer significant savings for NESCA members.
