access to national associations: MCAA & MSCA
The Mechanical Contractors Association of America, Inc. (MCAA) and the Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) are two national associations made up of approximately 2,300 mechanical, plumbing, and service contractors from all over the country. Members enjoy outstanding education programs, an expanding catalog of resources to help them manage and grow their businesses, periodicals and a website to keep them informed and connected, and business services to save them money. Membership with MCAA and MSCA is only available to contractor members who are first members of their local MCA or SCA.
The M&SCA supports personal educational development by providing a tuition reimbursement program to the employees of contractor member companies. This program is available to office and field staff and will provide up to $2000 in reimbursement for degree, non-degree, and certificate program tuition costs. Students who choose the Drexel University Construction Management Certificate Program are eligible to receive up to 50% of total tuition costs.
