Advocacy

The Business Council of Alabama works on your behalf by advocating for business at the Alabama legislature and the United States Congress. We recognize the challenges businesses face on a daily basis, and it is our goal to remain your trusted source for the most up to date information and resources. That is why Alabama business and industries have come to depend on BCA as the state’s most powerful and effective advocate.

Through our political action committee, ProgressPAC, we work hard to help elect candidates who understand the issues of concern to Alabama business. However, it is the member companies that develop and drive BCA’s actions in the legislative arena and at the ballot box, promoting those agendas through the organization’s far-reaching grassroots network and policy committee structure.

Let us know how we can advocate for your business on the matters that mean the most to you. Contact our Governmental Affairs Department, (334) 834-6000.

The Business Council of Alabama’s (BCA) foremost purpose is to aggressively represent Alabama’s business community by supporting pro-business and industry initiatives at the State House in Montgomery and in Washington D.C.
