About Us

The Construction Executives Association started in 2001 as a concept to bring together C-Level executives to discuss trending topics within the industry. Since its inception, CEA has been recognized as an elite Association dedicated to educational forums, best practices, and roundtable discussions within the construction industry. CEA is committed to the next generation of emerging leaders and the ever-growing landscape of construction. This mission, along with the support of our members, allows CEA to continue to grow and focus its efforts on “Building a Better South Florida.”


In 2017 the Construction Executives Association partnered with ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors East Florida Chapter and CASF (Construction Association of South Florida) to fund the Construc¬tion Storefront in Finance Park at Junior Achievement of South Florida. Annually 20,000 5th and 8th-grade students from Broward County and South Palm Beach County visit the storefront to learn about careers in the construction industry

Every student participates in a series of classroom lessons, where they learn about applying for jobs, voting, career opportunities, customer service, paychecks, savings, and more. Then, they put their knowledge to work at JA BizTown, where they operate a simulated economy and run businesses. Stu¬dents get hands-on experience at being citizens, consumers, employees, and business owners.
