The following benefits are available to GCA members:
Manufacturers, retailers, label owners such as hotels, casinos, government agencies and others are always searching our website for production referrals. Although searches are made mostly for contractors, a great number of visitors also search for other professional and industry service providers. Google, Yahoo, MSN and other search engines invariably list our GCA website at the very top when people search for garment contractors or California garment contractors. (Try it yourself to verify what we say.) No other program rivals ours for help in marketing your services to a very focused clientele. As a member you will have your own page on our website with your company's individual profile. You may be brief or go to great detail in describing your company and its capabilities. Your GCA page can be linked to your own website, if you have one, at no extra cost. In short, membership provides you with 24 x 7 advertising to the audience you want to reach. There is simply no better and more cost effective way to advertise or market your services to get you more work.
Our Executive Director, Joe Rodriguez, with an extensive background in Human Resources management, is available to answer questions on policies and practices for your company at no cost to you. Use of this service alone can save you the cost of dues many times over, save you thousands of dollars in non-compliance fines or penalties, and keep your company out of trouble.
New and renewal Garment License/Registration applications may be expedited at no cost for members or at moderate cost for nonmembers. Call for a review appointment.
Our Newsletter, posted on our website and e-mailed to members, keeps members posted on Association news, and on local and national events of interest to our industry. Members are encouraged to contribute articles or other information.
Sometimes companies and professionals leave us information that we can share with members. These contacts are often sources of technical and problem solving information, as well as subcontracting assistance. We will gladly share this information with members.
