The Association was a member of the Engineering Employers' Federation. There was a Bridgebuilding and Constructional National Technical Committee of the EEF, whose records cover the period 1924-1949. The Bridgebuilding and Constructional Engineering Employers' Association presumably amalgamated with the Engineering Employers' East Midlands Association, c.1973.
