After 52 years of being laser-focused on utility construction, UCAC knows the industry, the players, and the landscape.  In the past few years, we’ve experience tremendous growth and we want to invite you to join us to be part of the next chapter in our history. When you join UCAC you automatically gain access to a friendly, extensive network of local utility contractors and associated professionals as well as the valuable benefits of the National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA).  You will have access to the UCAC staff and lobbyist, who you can call on anytime.  UCAC staff actively looks for ways to make connections between members and promotes the news and successes of all members.  If you are in the UC industry in Connecticut, you belong in UCAC.
