The membership is comprised of licensed general contractors, specialty subcontractors, material suppliers and building related business associates.

The PCCA has a long history of community service and outreach, such as major contributors to Project Auburn, local high school scholarship programs, and community education to protect the public from unlicensed and unscrupulous contractors.

The PCCA was contacted to promote and support the Blues Festival as yet another way to keep the Placer County area a healthy community. It is our pleasure to participate in and continue a long tradition of our community gathering together for fun and recreation.
