Welcome to Chapter 26, the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE).  

ASPE Chapter 26 represents 150 years of combined experience serving the New Jersey construction community. It was formed by the merger of the Associated General Contractors of New Jersey and the Building Contractors Association of New Jersey, when leaders of those well-respected organizations decided to join forces.These visionaries created the strongest construction association in the State of New Jersey, and the only association representing all commercial and public construction contractors. ASPE Chapter 26 is a not-for-profit organization striving to strengthen the nation’s construction industry one day at a time. Our aim is to become the leading local resource for construction estimators by staying
focused on the goals and principles set forth by ASPE National; by providing education, fellowship, and opportunity for professional development to members of our organization.


Our members come from every corner of the construction world bringing together their diverse work experience and skills. Our members include estimators, general contractors, students, lawyers, project managers, architects, electricians, supervisors, engineers, and consultants, just to name a few.  We’re a group of eternal optimists. We believe that together we can strengthen the construction industry by providing the best estimators in the New Jersey area. 
For nearly 30 years the New Jersey Chapter has funded construction classes at local universities and colleges as well as professional certification classes. And, throughout the year we hold several community fundraising events to support Chapter scholarships funds. Our monthly meetings deliver lectures on the latest construction products, techniques, and skills.  
We believe that education is a life-long experience that empowers us to succeed in life. So, if you work in the construction industry and are seeking to advance your education and career, or looking for a local network of peers, then we are the group for you. You can come to our next Chapter meeting (last Tuesday of the month) as a guest to see first-hand who we are and what we’re all about. Or, jump in with both feet, and join our chapter right now!
