Join your fellow members for our various political events. Bring your coworkers and business partners to our events to learn how the government is affecting construction and ABC members. It is also a great opportunity to develop a relationship with the elected leaders and agency officials that make decisions every day that impact you, and your business.
Unlike most events, this event is geared towards two things:
- Connecting you and your workers with the elected and agency officials
- Keeping you informed on whats going on in government so you are prepared to face this ever-changing political landscape
You don’t have to be a political nut to join us. ABC’s motto is Get into Politics or Get Out of Business. As a business owner, you need to meet and develop relationships with the elected leaders in order to get ahead in this industry.
We have a variety of political events in each of our six regions. We hope to see you and your company there!
