The Construction Resource Network, founded in 1998, fosters an environment for construction-related businesses to prosper through shared knowledge. The Network builds constructive relationships while providing a forum for networking on a wide range of business management issues. Members earn each other’s trust and freely share ideas and information.


The Network is comprised of three interrelated components:


  • Network Associate/Staff
    Financial Design Group, Inc. provides the “people power” necessary to complete the work of the network and execute the planning of its activities.


  • Board of Advisors
    An advisory board is comprised of well-respected committed industry professionals. The Board provides feedback and potential solutions to timely issues and concerns of the industry. Each Board member serves a one-year term.


  • Consortium
    An association of professional construction industry advisors, service providers, and product vendors bring a unique blend of resources to the Network. Time and again they have saved our business owners time and money, provided invaluable expertise, and underwritten many of our activities.
