What We Do


SCA’s mission is to support and promote the American shipyard industry – including ship builders, ship repairers, and the associated supplier base – by providing strategic information and expertise for our membership and advocating on their behalf before Congress, Executive Branch and media.



"Having participated on the governing board of the Shipbuilders Council of America over the last two decades, I am very proud of the success and growth of our association to date.  As a stalwart supporter of the Jones Act, our US Navy and Coast Guard and our strategic industrial base, SCA has been a leader in defending our interests time and time again. As we look out to the future, our challenges are numerous and continuing but we have a strong and focused membership and professional staff to continue to successfully protect our critical national interests. I am committed to continung to lead this organization with the same direction and success of my predecessors." 

- Richard McCreary, SCA Chairman, Vice President of BAE Systems Southeast Shipyard
