The Contractors Association of Minnesota (CAM), formerly the Minnesota Association of Exterior Specialists (MNAES), was formed in 2009 by a group of concerned construction trade partners responding to proposed legislation by the insurance industry that was harmful to contractors working on storm-related events. It was at that time the CAM realized it was important to have a voice at the Capitol, and a lobbyist was hired to represent our interests. Since then, we have become the fastest growing association of exterior specialists in the country. CAM is a continually evolving group of professional contractors, distributors, and manufacturers who want to encourage positive change for the future of our industry.
The CAM’s mission is to help our members excel in the Minnesota specialized residential construction industry. Through legislation and regulation, we provide members with an industry voice at the State Capitol and its regulatory agencies. CAM also partners up with like-minded associations to protect your interests.
A strong membership in the industry is important to the CAM’s success. Being a member of CAM means you are taking the next step to better your business and your professional self! As a member, you will have the opportunity to share technical data and marketing information within the top residential and commercial exterior professionals in your area. You will also receive valuable information and the ability to participate in yearly continuing education courses specifically designed for your business. These yearly continuing education courses are always conveniently held in the winter, giving members maximum flexibility to earn continuing education credits.
