Membership Opportunities Open To Construction Professionals
Southern California Contractors Association (SCCA) opens and encourages membership to professionals, offering many benefits to those who join this long-established and relevant organization.
What started in 1950 as The Engineering and Grading Contractors Association (EGCA), a state-wide association for excavating and grading contractors, transformed in November 1974, when representatives from the Association seceded and formed what is now SCCA.
Since then, SCCA has established itself as a volunteered-led and member-governed Association of union-affiliated contractor businesses and affiliate construction industry service providers. Established to maintain high professional standards among construction contractors by encouraging sound business methods, efficiency, and cooperation between contractors, raising the industry standard, it continues to be a strong Membership network amidst the highly competitive Southern California construction marketplace.
