Ten Reasons to Join

  1. The BCA is Alabama’s largest and most well respected business trade association working on behalf of nearly three-quarters of a million working Alabamians through its member companies and local chambers of commerce.
  2. The BCA and the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama are united through a unique relationship, known as The Partnership, that unites Alabama’s business community and the 124 chambers of commerce in Alabama.
  3. The BCA recently formed the Business Education Alliance of Alabama to assist in providing the best education opportunities and skills training available for Alabama’s public school students, to provide objective research and support for proven and innovative education programs as well as to advocate for the implementation of new and needed education reforms.
  4. The BCA is Alabama’s exclusive affiliate to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.
  5. The BCA works to elect pro-business candidates who are committed to building a pro-growth environment in Alabama through its political action committee, ProgressPAC. The 2014 election cycle was one of the most successful in the history of ProgressPAC, positioning ProgressPAC to achieve its goal of having $4 million in the 2018 election cycle to support pro-business candidates.
  6. The 2014 elections and the nearly one-dozen legislative special elections in the previous four years have shown that the business community will elect and defend those candidates who are pro-business and we will defeat those who aren’t.
  7. BCA’s member companies develop and drive BCA’s actions in the legislative arena through nine standing committees that develop annual state and federal legislative agendas.
  8. An always-on-the-job business advocate that works tirelessly to ensure that business is effectively represented whenever and wherever public policy is made, the BCA for three decades has used its credibility and influence to effect legislative change and create a pro-business climate to help grow our state’s economy, create jobs and spur investment.
  9. The BCA supports openness and transparency in all aspects of the judicial system and is committed to shining a light on what is wrong with Alabama’s legal system and successfully advocating for legal reform.
  10. Pro-business victories in recent legislative sessions and elections have demonstrated how much a united business community can accomplish when we join together. Support and involvement by business and industry leaders through the Business Council of Alabama can help protect our past accomplishments and solidify the future of Alabama’s business environment.
