WebEd: Advocating for YOUR Construction Industry and Career

June 8, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

All WebEd times are in EST

Member Price: FREE
Non Member Price: FREE 


Do you regularly communicate with your elected officials or federal regulatory officials? If not, you should. These individuals in Washington, D.C., make decisions every day that impact your construction company, your career and your future. Yet, over 90 percent of elected officials in Congress and the vast majority of federal regulators have no background or understanding in the construction business that is your livelihood.

During this webinar, we will discuss not only why it is important for you to be a construction industry advocate, but also how to be an effective one—with varying levels of involvement based on your schedule and desires. Through AGC of America, some contractors simply send pre-written emails to their federally elected officials, others have submitted their comments to regulatory agencies and some testify before Congress. We will discuss these tactics in the context of AGC’s advocacy efforts against government mandated project labor agreements and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s attempted ban on post-incident drug testing on construction sites.
