The Jack Miller Network
The Construction Industry's Premier Organization
Founded in 1987 by the man dubbed by one noted construction writer as "the living legend with mud on his boots," the Jack Miller Network is an elite organization of over 700 construction industry firms from throughout the U.S. and Canada. At its heart is the philosophy of "Win-Win Sharing".

At the annual meeting in January each year, Network members gather to trade their successes and failures without boast or shame, opening up to one another every
aspect of their businesses, from financial and marketing programs to safety and management strategies. One member refers to it as "like having a direct pipeline to
the 'Contractors' Book of Knowledge.'" The trust and open exchange of information among members, which also continues informally throughout the year, has allowed Network members to become the most cost-efficient, quality-oriented and
profitable contractors in the industry.
The key is problem solving, not finger pointing; striving to achieve win/win situations not just in their Network relationships, but in their on the job dealings
with their building team partners. Joint ventures and assistance on out-of-area projects are common among members.
At the meetings, members have access to more than forty half-day focus groups on topics ranging from Computers and Design/Build to Leadership and Jobsite
Management - all led by member volunteers with real world experience. Four one-hour peer group discussions with eight to ten similar sized, non-competitive firms,
are also held to talk over topics and issues of importance. In addition, members can view – and copy – materials of other Network members – everything from
safety and personnel manuals to proposals,brochures and newsletters.
Not every contractor is suited to be a Jack Miller Network member. It requires an openness, an attitude of trust, and an unwavering commitment to sharing. Those
that have it find themselves regarded by their clients, their peers and their building team partners as "the guys we want to do business with."
