About Us

The MCA’s mission is to deliver value and opportunity to our member firms. We support and assist our members by advocating for our industry in the legislature and leveraging the strength of the Associated General Contractors of America. Our members receive benefits and services that aren’t economically feasible to provide for themselves.

Along with supporting our membership, the MCA creates economic growth opportunities by partnering with all of Montana’s industrial sectors (construction, agriculture, mining, energy) in support of an inclusive industrial consensus focused on the growth and success of every sector of our economy.

MCA Divisions and Committees

MCA members are involved in a wide range of construction-related activities. In order to appropriately represent these varying interests, the MCA has developed divisions and committees within the larger association. These sub-divisions of the MCA allow our members to obtain focused industry information, and to take part in detailed discussion of the issues that affect their businesses.
