SCOAR History

The Business Roundtable South Florida Chapter was formally incorporated in September, 1973.  In February 1974, a similar group, the Florida Business Roundtable was incorporated in Tampa, primarily as a Central Florida organization.  In October 1975, the two groups, bound by their common interests, were merged and the surviving organization was known as the Florida Business Roundtable, Inc.,  and it became a statewide association.  In 2002, in response to the formation of CURT, formerly the construction arm of the Business Roundtable, the Florida Business Roundtable changed its name to FCURT, the Florida Construction Users Roundtable.  FCURT operated in cooperation with the South Georgia Local User Council occasionally holding joint meetings.  In 2011, due to Membership and Member business activity interests resting beyond Florida and into the Southeastern States, the organization changed its name to the Southeastern Construction Owners & Associates Roundtable, Inc.-SCOAR.
