The Indiana Subcontractors Association, Inc. (ISA) was established in 1964. ISA was a chapter of the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) focused on leading trade contractors to improve the business environment for the construction industry. The organization did this locally through government advocacy, battling for improved business conditions regarding such things as insurance, retainage, contract language, etc., and providing educational opportunities for members. In 2002, the ISA made a decision to disaffiliate with the ASA due to a dwindling ISA membership roster and funding issues. With 15 members and $5,000 in the bank, the ISA leadership began to rebuild and rebrand the ISA.
