Member Benefits


"NUCA of Nebraska has improved my business through training opportunities, exposure to new vendors, and social interaction with competitors in a non-competitive environment. If the only time you see other contractors is on bid day, you will never develop the relationships that can benefit your company." - Ryan Kinning, Penro Construction Company

"NUCA of Nebraska has been a great way for us to support our utility contractors and help them service their customers, grow their business, and generally advocate for growth and exposure for the underground utility construction industry. We are a NUCA of Nebraska member because utility contractors are the lifeblood of our business." - Eric Leatherman, Lincoln Winwater


NUCA of Nebraska provides to the Utility Industry training; networking; the opportunity to meet and discuss with your peers the issues affecting our industry; and the opportunity to address issues through political advocacy. There are also many opportunities to socialize and build relationships with other contractors in the industry. NUCA is the Association that fits our needs as a utility contractor!" - Edward D. Watts, Watts Electric Company
