Advocacy Update: Thankful for Engaged Members

Thank you for your service and membership with ABC! It is safe to say the start of the new decade did not go as anyone intended. Our members continue to manage the effects of the pandemic and are concerned about business prospects in 2021. Despite these challenges, ABC chapters and members have been more active in our advocacy efforts than ever before. In fact, during and after the shutdown, our grassroots network grew by nearly 50 percent. Thank you!

Make Your Voice Heard: VOTE

Many of you have already performed your civic duty by casting your vote through the mail. For that, we thank you. Others are planning to vote in-person at the polls. We thank you in advance.

In the days that follow, ABC will communicate to members on those candidates that won their elections. We look forward to building upon our relationships and working closely with all elected officials on policy issues impacting the commercial construction industry.

As a service to our members, we posted the full list of those candidates we believe will defend free enterprise and the merit shop philosophy. View a complete list of endorsements.
