Through your efforts, we can:

  • establish contacts to quickly and effectively reach out to officials on issues important to the merit shop
  • educate and train ABC members to be effective advocates and spokespersons for the construction industry; and
  • be truly effective in Olympia and locally by reaching out to legislators through the most effective means possible: grassroots initiatives!
