Welcome to the ASA of Baltimore
American Subcontractors Association (ASA) of Baltimore, a non-profit trade association, was established June 12, 1967 to address the business problems that affect subcontractors of all trades. We are a chapter of the American Subcontractors Association, which is headquartered in Alexandria, VA. Founded in 1966, the national association serves more than 5,000 member companies through a nationwide network of local and state chapters. It has succeeded in becoming the pinnacle of subcontracting organizations across the country.

WATCH YOUR CONTRACTS! 5% RETENTION BEGAN JULY 1, 2013!
Assisted by its lobbyist, Bruce Bereano, ASA of Baltimore won a huge victory for all subcontractors when the Maryland State legislature passed a Senate Bill 140, which took effect on July 1, 2013. This new bill limits retention from contractors and subcontractors on all public projects in the State to a maximum of 5% throughout the entire project.
Don't sign a contract containing the 10% retention for 1st 50% of project language! Many General Contractors will tell you they never heard of such a thing. Keep a copy of this bill with you to educate them!
