The Oklahoma Municipal Contractors Association (OMCA) has been working for the benefit of all municipal utilities contractors since incorporation on February 20, 1950.
As the work load increased with greater emphasis on water supply and pollution control, so have the problems become more complex and demanding.
A national voice in the construction industry was secured when the OMCA became a charter chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America on September 30, 1965.
