VRCA Member Emergency Support

Together we will weather any storm. #WeatherAnyStorm

Supporting our member organizations and the local construction industry through hardship or crisis is a role we take very seriously at the VRCA. In the short-term of any emergency, we are available to communicate information and resources. We are also a member hub, connecting those who may need assistance with those who are eager to lend a hand.

In the days and weeks following a crisis, we are here to work with our members and broader resources to support the fastest possible recovery for all affected. Construction will always be an essential service to our communities and our economy.

As president of the VRCA, I am here to listen. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have a need or a solution – I welcome conversations on both. Donna Grant, President
