The Billiard Congress of America was established in 1948, with early involvement by players like Willie Mosconi and Willie Hoppe. The objective was to organize the players and promote the sport through qualifying tournaments at the local, regional and national levels in Straight Pool and 3-Cushion billiards (the popular competitive disciplines of the era) and recognize those champions. Currently, The Billiard Congress of America also operates the Professional Billiard Instructors Association. With more than 300 internationals PBIA Instuctors, the PBIA is the largest organization of international of professional billiard instructors. The Billiard Congress of America also launched the playbetterbilliards website in 2012, aimed at promoting the benefits of seeking out quality, PBIA-certified instructors.

Additionally, the Billiard Congress of America has the honor of being the North American representative to the World-Pool Billiard Association. As such, the organization is responsible for selecting players for world championships, rules and specifications input and other timely topics paramount to the sport and industry. This position permits the Billiard Congress of America to publish the “Official Rules and Records Book, World-Standardized Rules.” The Billiard Congress of America also oversees the Billiard Congress of America Hall of Fame.
