Making a sweet home for business

For more than a quarter century, the Business Council of Alabama has been working on behalf of business interests in our state and nation. In 2011, with the help of the Alabama Legislature, which for the first time was truly committed to addressing the concerns of business, the BCA was instrumental in securing passage of a number of real reforms in the areas of job creation, incentives for economic development, ethics reform and positive changes in our public education system. That’s why Alabama businesses and industries of all shapes and sizes have come to depend on the Business Council of Alabama as the state’s most powerful and effective advocate for business at the Alabama Legislature and in the U.S. Congress.

On the strength of our thousands of members who employ more than three-quarters of a million Alabamians, we are heard. Thanks to our strong and growing membership, BCA is the voice for business in Alabama.

Join the movement that is making Alabama better for business!
