The Retail Contractors Association is a national organization of high caliber retail contractors united to provide a solid foundation of ethics, safety, quality and professionalism within the retail construction industry.

The RCA Board of Directors has decided to fully cancel our 2020 Annual Conference, with no plans to reschedule an event for this year. As you may know, SPECS Show 2020 has been postponed to June 28-30, 2020, at the Gaylord Texan. SPECS and Chain Store Age are long-term partners of RCA and we encourage you to continue your support of their rescheduled event.

We had plans to celebrate RCA’s 30th Anniversary at this year’s conference. We will instead celebrate the organization, our members, and our current and past leadership at our 2021 Annual Conference, which will be held prior to SPECS, on Friday, March 12 and Saturday, March 13, 2021, at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, MD. SPECS Show 2021 will be held March 14-16, 2021 at the same venue. Mark your calendar now.
