Advocacy

The BCA is the state’s most powerful and effective advocate for business at the Alabama Legislature and the U.S. Congress.

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 Intergovernmental Affairs and Advocacy Department, 334-834-6000.
