Advance Your Position

GBCA is your direct connection to local, state, and federal governmental officials and policy makers. We monitor, initiate and engage legislation at all three levels on behalf of our members.


We maintain a working relationship with the Philadelphia City Council, the Mayor and various City agencies. GBCA also attends regular City Council sessions, as well as hearings, announcements, and special events.


GBCA participates in state activities through the General Contractors Association of Pennsylvania along with the Master Builders’ Association of Western PA and the Keystone Contractors Association. This statewide coalition engages state legislators with commercial / industrial / institutional contractors across the state.


GBCA supports the legislative efforts of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). AGC’s Legislative Action Committee sets legislative priorities and serves as a regulatory clearinghouse to ensure that AGC members have a voice in determining AGC’s policy agenda. AGC works with its chapters to solve the most vexing legislative problems facing the industry.


GBCA represents our members as well as Philadelphia’s greater building community, and we work to have a strong, collective voice before our elected officials. Maintaining a strong PAC allows GBCA to remind political and industry leaders that we have a strong grassroots network, effective leadership, and a committed membership.
