Don’t Miss the Cement & Concrete Industry Fly-In

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. Hotel rooms are going quickly, so please make plans as soon as possible.

Why is this event more important than ever?  Elected officials need to hear from industry officials, and the timing is right because of 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.

About the Transportation Construction Coalition

The Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC)* is a partnership of national associations and construction unions representing hundreds of thousands of individuals with a direct market interest in federal transportation programs, according to the group’s website.  Representing the broad transportation-construction industry, the group serves as a “unified voice for strong federal surface transportation investment.”

The coalition focuses on federal budget and surface transportation program policy issues, and is supported by activists in virtually every Congressional district.  These activists provide a vital service to their communities by helping to improve the efficiency and safety of America’s transportation infrastructure. TCC member organizations represent contractors, the planning and design community, safety professionals, materials and manufacturing industries, and their employees. The TCC’s unique membership enables the coalition to articulate with one voice the impact of federal policies and investment levels on all aspects of the transportation construction industry.

The organization was established in July 1996 and is co-chaired by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) and the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America.
