Open Quarterly Meetings

The goal of each Open Quarterly Meeting (OQM) is to bring component manufacturers (CMs) and suppliers together to discuss the latest issues facing the components industry. Besides BCMC, OQMs are one of the most valuable investments CMs can make both from the perspective of return on that investment and industry-specific best practice development. Given their focus on open dialogue and social interaction, the relationship building opportunities at each OQM are unparalleled.

Member Feedback

“Having been in the truss business for over 40 years, I often think I know just about all there is to know. However, as I continue to engage with the friends I’ve made through SBCA and listen to how they solve problems, I continue to broaden my perspective on how to tackle issues. More than ever, as building code, regulatory and material supply issues arise one after another, we all need to be fully aware of what we don’t know. SBCA meetings are the best place to find out exactly what we might be overlooking.”
