Who We Are
The Trinidad and Tobago Contractors Association (TTCA) was founded in 1968 by visionaries Mr. Granville Johnson, Mr. McDonald Morrell, Mr. Lepold Arthur and Mr. Emile Elias. The Association is a medium through which members and the greater society benefits from construction related training and adherence to agreed to standards by members. The TTCA lobbies for issues affecting contractors and continuously pursues the various publics for the improvement and development of the sector.
After 49 years, the Association continues to strive for excellence in the Industrial, Residential, Commercial and Institutional Sectors. Members include small, medium and large firms and make up a spectrum of general contractors, manufacturers and specialty construction suppliers.
The affairs of the TTCA are overseen by a Board of ten (10) Directors, inclusive of a President, Vice President and a Secretary, all of whom are business owners or senior executives/officers employed by companies operating within the construction sector.
Members are elected to the Board at the company’s Annual General Meeting and it should be noted that, at present these positions are held strictly on a volunteer basis and there is no remuneration involved. Nonetheless, to date the TTCA Board of Directors has always proven to be a committed and dedicated group of individuals who bring high levels of skill, knowledge, training and professional experience to bear in providing the required guidance and direction for the Association.
The day to day operation of the TTCA Secretariat is overseen by a General Manager who is ably assisted by a small complement of staff. Notwithstanding the size of the team, the Association champions many huge initiatives that are of vital importance to the entire construction industry and by extension, to the development of Trinidad and Tobago as a whole.
