Why Join?

Whether you’re interested in adding your voice to a conversation about an industry topic through one of our various committees, or simply looking for networking opportunities to target new business, SC&RA delivers exceptional and ongoing value to organizations by bringing more than 1,400 like-minded companies together that are lifting & moving the world.
Members enjoy access to benefits and services that can be summarized into three categories:

  1. Protected:   SC&RA protects its members and it turn works hard for them. In the pursuit of improved safety, efficiency, productivity and profitability for member companies in the specialized transportation, crane and rigging industry, SC&RA successfully advocates on the industry’s behalf to worldwide governing bodies and policy makers as well as state & local officials.
  3. Being Profitable:  SC&RA offers both FREE training and members-only training through a portal of online learning opportunities for those interested in crane, rigging, specialized transportation and related activities. Users can maximize our online courses, webinars and live recordings of sessions that were originally held in-person, such as conference sessions or workshops.
  5. Being Seen: SC&RA’s four events facilitate networking, education, and participation in discussions that serve as the catalyst for many of the industries advocacy successes.  In addition the annual Membership Directory (online and in print) features more than 1700 listings of member companies, their branches and subsidiaries. This is the #1 resource in the industry and loyal SC&RA members look to the directory first for partners in a particular region or country when bidding on jobs.

While there are plenty of benefits to joining SC&RA and becoming a member, one of the most compelling benefits is your inclusion into this prestigious group of specialty companies who are literally lifting and moving the world.

What Does it Cost?

We understand that when you’re making decisions, it almost always comes down to money, so here’s what we do to address your financial concerns. Membership for the first year is only $595 – whereby you still get access to all member benefits plus a FREE complimentary event registration you can use in your first year.

Thereafter, SC&RA’s annual renewal dues are on a sliding scale, based on your company’s United States based gross revenue from operations in Crane, Rigging, Specialized Transportation and/or Supporting Industries.

The dues schedule to the right takes effect beginning the second year of a company’s membership. Dues are prorated for the second year and the industry gross revenue amount applies to all SC&RA related operations with the member company, unless a specific division joins the association. All gross revenue figures are identified on an honor system, kept in the strictest confidence and maintained only by the Association's staff. Other association members, including the Board of Directors, Executive Committee members and officers are not privileged to see the information.
