|The Contractor Advisory Board® is a group of building and construction contractors from across the United States, Canada and other countries spanning the residential, light commercial, heavy commercial, and industrial sectors of the building industry. It includes "new construction" as well as remodeling and retrofit. All types of contractors (general contractors, HVAC/R, electrical, tile and masonry, plumbing, landscape, roofing, drywall, painting, pool, fencing, excavation, insulation, framing, glass, remodeling, siding, fire protection, environmental controls, security, etc.) are invited to join. By participating in online opinion surveys and online discussions through The Contractor Advisory Board®, contractors help influence everything from new product development activities to building codes and certification standards. The knowledge and advice of Board Members help manufacturers, contractor groups, governmental agencies, utilities and wholesalers/distributors make better informed, more intelligent decisions about regulatory, product and field support issues.
As a member of the Contractor Advisory Board®, you would be paid for every online survey you complete (ranging from a minimum of $10 U.S. to $200 U.S. or more, depending of the length of the online survey or discussion). When you complete a very brief questionnaire (called a "screener") to see if you qualify for a survey, you are automatically entered into a drawing with the opportunity to win lucrative cash prizes, regardless of whether you are selected to complete the survey or not. Also, just for being a member, your name would be entered into a monthly drawing for $250 in cash prizes.
More important than the financial rewards is the opportunity to express your opinions, give advice, argue your points of view, and share your knowledge with government regulators, utilities, and major corporations on issues that directly affect your livelihood. As a Board Member, you are in a position to directly influence the policies and decisions of these organizations. Also, as a member, you would learn about new products, new services and new business concepts through your participation. You would be aware of new industry developments and trends before others.|
