FCA Members and Friends,
As of today, January 11, FCA International has officially cleared its 20th year. On this day 21 years ago, a group of industry-leading contractors and association executives met on a chilly day in the basement of the Chicago O’Hare Airport to form your international contractor association.
From the very beginning, FCA’s vision has been to build a better future for the families of signatory finishing contractors, and that’s a vision we still share today. FCA has grown into a force for change in our industry over its short history, and that is thanks to the dedication, passion and leadership from the FCA community.
Congratulations to FCA’s founding fathers whose vision and dedication got our association off the ground. Congratulations to our board members, past and present, who have taken time away from their businesses and families to lead our association. Congratulations to our Affiliates who have been invaluable local partners. Congratulations to our industry partners who have worked with us to accomplish things neither could accomplish alone. Last but not least, congratulations to each and every FCA contractor member and their teams for providing our association a purpose and for helping to build a better future for our industry.
It is because of your involvement that FCA has grown into an international association with more than 7,000 contractor members and more than 55 Affiliate associations.
Thank you to all who have helped steer this ship for the past two decades. We look forward to continuing the vision laid out by our founding fathers and building a better future for all our families.
This is your association. Be proud!
Chief Executive Officer
