Upper Midwest Chapter

National Association of Minority Contractors

We support minority contractors to find more contract opportunities and advocate for a level playing field by working with legislation, government entities and private industries.

What is NAMC?

The National Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC) is a non-profit trade association that was established in 1969 to address the needs and concerns of minority contractors. While membership is open to people of all races and ethnic backgrounds, the organization’s mandate, “Building Bridges – Crossing Barriers,” focuses on construction industry concerns common to African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans.

NAMC supports minority contractors for more contract opportunities and advocates a level playing ground by working with legislation, government entities and private industries.
