Associated Builders and Contractors announced Nov. 15 that Buddy Henley, president, Henley Construction Co. Inc., Gaithersburg, Maryland, was elected the 2024 ABC national chair at a board of directors meeting held in conjunction with the association’s annual Leadership Institute in Rancho Mirage, California.

“ABC provides the opportunities and tools to be successful in construction, an industry that I chose when I was 16, climbing the ladder until achieving my career dreams as the president of a family-owned contractor,” said Henley. “ABC creates the conditions for us to succeed in the industry. The honor of serving as ABC’s national chair allows me and my leadership team to have a lasting impact on strengthening the merit shop construction industry on so many levels, including delivering on ABC’s strategic goals of establishing our members as the industry leaders in total human health, safety and environment; increasing ABC’s strength in the political arena; expanding workforce development; and growing a diverse and committed membership.”

“The 2024 ABC Executive Committee leads the merit shop construction industry and will add value to the association, this vibrant industry and ABC members’ cultures and bottom lines by helping them develop their people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for the betterment of the communities in which they work,” said Michael Bellaman, ABC president and CEO. “Working with exceptional leaders like Buddy, Chair-Elect David Pugh, Secretary ‘Murph’ Murphy and all of our 2024 elected leaders, ABC will continue to be an organization of high trust, high collaboration and effective communication to deliver value to our members, industry and community.”
