The National Association of Tower Erectors was founded by a group of companies whose primary function was erecting, servicing, constructing or maintaining communication towers or similar structures. Two categories of membership have been established: Primary Membership and Support Membership. Please review the descriptions listed below to determine which category best defines your company.

Primary Membership

Primary members are classified as any firm or corporation engaged in erecting, servicing, constructing or maintaining communication towers or similar structures as their primary business. Primary membership is divided into two subcategories:

Primary Voting Members
