- Wednesday, 07 March 2018 09:30
ACPA is urging all members and affiliates to participate in the annual Cement & Concrete Fly-In, scheduled for April 24 and 25 in Washington, D.C. Given the Trump Administration’s focus on infrastructure investment, as well as reauthorization proposals being developed, now is the time to let elected officials know about our priorities, as well as the need for funding and a durable HTF fix. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear legislative briefings and to be part of the discussion with Congressional offices and other Federal officials.
