SMACNA/SMART Best Practices Task Force Values Your Input

Mar 31, 2017

Your opinion counts. SMACNA and SMART’s Best Practices Market Expansion Task Force is continually working to identify, promote, communicate and support industry best practices. As the market has gone from good, to bad, to better, areas where labor and management communicate and cooperate tend to garner higher market share, contractors win more projects, and craftspeople work additional hours. Do you agree?

The task force has created a State of SMART-SMACNA Labor/Management Cooperation Survey to pinpoint which areas around North America have established labor-management cooperation organizations, determine the perceived value of labor/management cooperation, and find success stories. 

The survey is also available via the Partners in Progress website. All SMACNA chapters and contractors are requested to participate by June 16, 2017. Results will be shared only in aggregate in SMACNA, SMART, and Partners in Progress publications. Please direct any questions regarding the survey to Jason Watson at

PLEASE NOTE: The survey is being administered by a third-party consultant using Survey Monkey. Your responses are anonymous and will be compiled into a summary of findings to share with the committee.
