Membership inquiries can be made by contacting CIECI Assistant Coordinator, Katie Lilja at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-508-8777.
The CIECI membership application can be found here. Membership applications are reviewed twice annually (May and October).
The criteria and steps to membership are simple:
First, the applicant must be a U.S. company within the construction industry. The Initiative is open to responsible companies that design and build projects, including architect/ engineers, general contractors, specialty contractors and subcontractors.
Second, prospective members should address correspondence to the Initiative Coordinator, signed by the CEO or President, agreeing to comply with the following CIECI Principles:
The correspondence should affirm the company’s commitment to the aforementioned principles, provides a statement of current company annual revenues, and gives the name and full contact information of a vice president or management official as the key contact person for CIECI correspondence and information. Additionally, the Company must agree to pay an annual assessment to fund CIECI operations, based on the following:
Revenues over $1 billion – $6000 per year$250 million to $1 billion – $5000 per year$50 million to $250 million – $4000 per yearUnder $50 million – $2000 per year
Note: For new members, the annual assessment (not the initial payment of $3000) is prorated on a twelve month basis (e.g. membership effective July 1 requires payment of one-half the annual amount).
IMPORTANT: Do not send checks with initial correspondence. Once accepted, the company will be invoiced by CIECI for the first assessment payment.
