ABC National Prepares for Upcoming Election

  As part of ABC’s ongoing efforts to elect pro-Merit Shop candidates to elected office and maintain a majority in the US Senate, association staff is conducting their second FEA Travel Team visit of the 2016 election cycle.  Earlier this month, the team was in Florida to support the re-election campaign of Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and is currently deployed to Pennsylvania to encourage ABC members to get out the vote for Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA).  Funded by ABC’s Free Enterprise Alliance, Travel Teams visit ABC member contractors in targeted states to deliver important Get Out The Vote materials and encourage support for ABC endorsed candidates. Once member company offices are closed for the day, Travel Teams volunteer at local campaign offices to conduct voter outreach.  Between Florida and Pennsylvania, FEA Travel Teams will visit over 1000 member companies and commit approximately 160 volunteer hours to electing ABC-endorsed candidates.

ABC Young Professionals Take Capitol Hill

Members of Congress aren’t experts at construction and the issues that affect it. That’s where professionals in the industry come into play. While our congressmen and women are there to advocate for us, how do they know the significance of what they are advocating for if we don’t tell them? It is our job to tell our stories and be heard.

That’s what ABC Young Professionals learned June 22 during the first annual YP Symposium at ABC’s Legislative Week.
