Letter from the President



Dear TCA Members,

Did you share in the $4.8 million distributed by Texas Mutual Insurance Company to the Texas Construction Safety Group last month?  If not, I suggest you get with your insurance agent to see if your company qualifies to be a member of the safety group.

In addition to the savings of TCA’s Texas Mutual program, WEX fuel management, rapid! PayCard, and Office Depot programs offer significant savings to your company.  Check those Member Benefits under the Membership tab. 

On January 12, 2021, the Texas Capitol will host the beginning of the 140-day session of the Texas Legislature.  Check out the Government Affairs section of the website for perspectives on issues of statewide importance and those of particular importance to the construction industry. TCA will be supporting specific construction bills, bills affecting our members as employers, and other issues that may arise which are beneficial to our members.  As always, TCA staff and its lobby team will also be watching for issues that negatively affect our members.

The COVID-19 pandemic has left Texans wondering how the legislative session will be conducted.  Regardless, the session will occur and we and our partners in various legislative efforts will work within whatever legislative framework is constructed to get the most from the session for our members and the construction industry.

With a COVID-19 vaccine being distributed, there is a tendency to believe things will instantly get resolved.  Resolution, if possible, won’t be the case likely until well into 2021.  Everyone needs to be VIGILANT in maintaining the appropriate pandemic protocols in the office and on job sites.

I’m looking forward to the beginning of normalcy sometime in 2021.  In the meantime, I send best wishes for a successful 2021.

Thank you and stay safe,
