There are probably two main reasons surety professionals promote contract surety bonds in construction, and neither is driven by accolades and awards.
One is to develop new business. Visiting with conference attendees, meeting with construction contractors, and answering questions from private owners, developers, public owners, and construction lenders are great ways to interact with potential new clients.
Another is to give back to the industry and the community in return for all that each has given you. By promoting the value and benefits of surety bonds, you help establish positive awareness of the surety product.
We know you are not promoting surety to win awards. But we want to recognize your efforts anyway. It is our way of saying “thank you” for taking the time. For taking the next step. For going above and beyond. For making a difference.
