MCAI National Affiliation with MCAA
MCAI is closely allied to its national counterpart, the Mechanical Contractors Association of America, located near Washington, D.C. All regular members of MCAI are also members of MCAA. A large contingent of MCAI members regularly attend the MCAA Annual Convention usually held in March of each year. MCAI has also supported three (3) of its members to become presidents of MCAA (H. Jack Baker, 1974, James A. House, 1990, and Steve Dawson, 2015)
MCAI Local Chapters
Within MCAI there are five local chapters who meet on a regular basis and carry on much of the business of the association. These chapters are known as MCA-Indianapolis Area (Indianapolis, Kokomo, Muncie, Anderson, Richmond Area), Fort Wayne Area MCA (Ft. Wayne, Marion, Elkhart, Angola Area), Wabash Valley MCA (Terre Haute, Lafayette Area) St. Joe Valley ( South Bend, Mishawaka Area), and the MCA of Southern Indiana (Evansville, Bloomington Area). Each of these chapters is engaged in multi- employer negotiations and has a current collective bargaining agreement with their respective United Association local union.
