The RBCA was incorporated in November 2014 by a small group of committed African American volunteer business leaders as the successor organization to the original Black
Contractors Association which was founded in June of 2002.
Today, the RBCA is the premiere African American Construction Member Services organization in North Texas serving a membership base of 100 plus that includes:
- Professional services and trades firms in the Construction Industry.
- General Contractors
- Construction Management Firms
- Management Consultants
- Training Organizations
- Membership is open to all ethnicities and genders.
Evidence of the historical underutilization of African American construction industry professional services and trades firms, in both the Public and Private Sectors, is well documented. Published Total Spend with Minority and Women owned business enterprises (MWBEs) by North Texas Public Sector entities range between 28-34%. An analysis of the Total Spend by Ethicality and Gender reveals that Spend African American firms are in the 1-4% range.
Today, the RBCA is the primary organization working on implementable solutions that enable the meaningful and sustainable inclusion of African American construction industry professional services and trades firms. The strategy includes direct engagement with owners and developers as well as general contractors and construction management firms.
