Advocacy Matters

Membership in the Business Council of Alabama (BCA) makes an important statement about who you are, your business and the value you place on our organization’s mission and goals. At the BCA, we feel that we do one thing very well – provide a unified voice for all Alabama businesses both at the State House and in our nation’s Capitol.

We use our credibility and the strength of our membership to influence and affect legislative change.  For more than 28 years, we have remained steadfast in our mission to create a pro-business climate to help grow our state’s economy, create jobs and spur investment in our state.

It is through the BCA members’ financial commitment that our advocacy team makes a significant difference in how your bottom line is affected and keeps Alabama moving forward in a positive direction.

It’s an exciting time to be a part of the BCA!  It is our promise to you and to each of our members to remain committed to fostering an environment in which your business may grow and thrive. While you’re at your office, meeting with customers or managing the plant floor – which means you are hard at work keeping your business on track – the BCA is fully engaged in the legislative process protecting your bottom line from costly regulations, over taxation and health care mandates. BCA’s advocacy team is results driven, standing in the gap for the small business owner, as well as the larger companies throughout our state.

BCA’s volunteer leadership contribute powerfully to the vision and welfare of the BCA and have established a long tradition of high level planning, policy formulation and lending their executive skills to allow our organization to stand strong. These accomplished volunteers have positioned the BCA to be recognized as the largest and most well-respected business trade association in the state.

Membership in the BCA makes a substantial impact on the great state of Alabama, conveys your concern for our future and is valued and greatly appreciated.

Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.  – Robert F. Kennedy
