History of the PWCA
Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, The Prevailing Wage Contractors Association, PWCA, was established in 1993 with the express purpose of assisting contractors while they navigate the confusing world of Prevailing Wage rules and regulations. Initially the PWCA only offered support and advice to its member employers. However, it soon became clear that there was a dearth of bona fide benefit plans that met the unique needs of prevailing wage contractors. Additionally, many benefit plans that were well suited to prevailing wage contractors, did not work well with small to medium sized contractors. In the mid 1990s, The PWCA began to sponsor benefit plans that catered to the specific needs of these contractors, including retirement plans and insurance.
While Retirement plans and insurance products fill an important need, they were still not a great fit for many Prevailing Wage employers. In 1995, the PWCA began sponsoring its most popular benefit plan, the Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plan, or SUB Plan. The SUB Plan proved to be a great fit for many Prevailing Wage contractors.
The PWCA SUB Plan was the first SUB Plan in the country specifically created for Prevailing Wage contractors.
The PWCA membership has grown steadily over the years. From just a handful of employers in the early years, the membership is now over 200 employers. Member employers are located coast to coast and the PWCA can assist employers in all 50 states.
The PWCA is governed by a Board of Directors that is responsible for making decisions regarding the Association and Benefit Plans. The Board is comprised of a diverse mix of PWCA Member Employers, Contractors and Financial Representatives.
The PWCA’s current Executive Director is Eric Rosenberg
