The Heavy Construction Contractors Association (HCCA) is a non-profit organization chartered under the laws of Virginia, and serving contractors, firms associated with contracting firms, professionals and government representatives in the Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland region.
The Association is governed by the elected Officers (President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer) elected by the voting membership for a term of two-years, and rotating through each official position before they are out of office. Hence, the Officers of the Association make an eight year commitment of service. The Officers are joined by a contracted legal counsel.
Assisting the Officers is a 10 member elected Board of Directors, which includes the Executive Director, an employee of the HCCA..
Much of the actual day-to-day work of the Association is conducted by the seven Committees, made up of volunteer members. Four of the committees have a direct impact on the advocacy role of the association. These are: Legislative Committee, Public Relations Committee, Safety, Trucking and Miss Utility Committee and the Municipal Relations Committee. Another committee, the Membership Committee, oversees the process of getting and evaluating new members of the Association. A sixth committee, the Expo Committee, has responsibility for the bi-annual heavy construction trades exposition. The final committee, the Golf Committee, is responsible for organizing and running the Spring and Fall fund-raising golf tournements.
The Staff consists of the Executive Director, Operations Manager, Safety Trainer, Office Administrator, and Lobbyist. The Association is fortunate to have many among its members who volunteer their time and assistance to make the HCCA events enjoyable and meaningful.
