BSCAI (Building Service Contractors Association International) was officially formed in March 1965, when over 60 charter members came to Washington, D.C., for the first Annual Meeting. The groundwork for this meeting had been laid over the preceding six months by the seven founders who had held local meetings and distributed a newsletter.

Since this time, the industry has grown rapidly. An increasing number of buildings began utilizing the wide range of services offered by building service contractors. The Association has also grown steadily and now has a strong membership base. Since the growth potential of individual firms is nearly unlimited, the Association has come to include a wide cross-section: from small, closely held family firms to large corporations with numerous branches.

BSCAI has always been fortunate to be governed by a knowledgeable Board of Directors. For 50  years, the Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI) has been the Business Resource for Contractors™. BSCAI represents a worldwide network of more than 1,000 member companies from across the United States and 15 countries worldwide that provide cleaning, facility maintenance, security, landscaping and other related services to building owners and managers. The association provides contractor-specific educational programs, individual certifications, publications, a members-only purchasing program, seminars, industry data and research and networking opportunities, all developed specifically for leaders in the building service contracting industry.
