The Associated General Contractors of America (AGCA) is the leading national association for the construction industry. Operating in partnership with its nationwide network of chapters, AGCA provides a full range of services satisfying the needs and concerns of its members.

AGCA was established in 1918 after a request by President Woodrow Wilson. Wilson recognized the construction industry’s national importance and desired a partner with which the government could discuss and plan for the advancement of the nation. AGCA has been fulfilling that mission for the last 97 years.

A full service national trade association with a nationwide network of exceptional chapters, AGCA represents more than 27,500 leading firms in the industry—including general contractors, specialty contractors, and service providers and suppliers. AGCA members play a powerful role in sustaining economic growth, in addition to producing structures that add to productivity and the nation’s quality of life. AGCA is truly the “voice and choice” of the construction industry.
