HCA Committee Chairs are selected by the current president and hold the position for one year. Each chairman is responsible for the selection of their committee members and all HCA members are eligible to sit on a committee. The duties of the chair and the committee members are to help the president in serving the membership by taking on the responsibility of managing special issues dealing with the civil construction industry. The City of Houston and Harris County, when updating their plans and specifications documents bring them to be reviewed by our committees before making them public. This gives the City and the County an opportunity to have their documents thoroughly vetted by the industry that it will affect prior to it becoming the law of the land, and allows for a much cleaner transition from the old documents to the new.
