ACPA has formed the Legislative Issues Committee (LIC), which replaces the association’s Legislative Issues Task Force.
The LIC held its inaugural meeting on June 14. The first order of business was to transition the task force (typically formed for limited time periods to address specific topics) to a standing committee.
The committee’s purpose is to, “engage individual members of the Association in activities for the purpose of exchanging information and making recommendations to the ACPA Board of Directors on legislative and regulatory matters affecting the Association and the concrete pavement industry.”
The LIC elected Dan Rozycki, The Transtec Group, as Committee Chairman, and John Cunningham, Iowa Concrete Paving Association, as Vice Chairman. As prescribed, by the operating guidelines, the LIC Chairman will serve as a voting member of the ACPA Board of Directors. In addition to covering other business and hearing updates on activities related to the current administration and occurring on Capitol Hill, the LIC also recognized and thanked Peter Deem, CarbonCure, and Gerry Krozel, St Marys Cement, for leading the LITF since its establishment in 2008.
ACPA Urges Participation
Participation in LIC meetings and activities–including receiving ACPA legislative and regulatory updates–now requires ACPA members and affiliates to complete an “Advocacy Interest Membership” form annually. Participation also allows ACPA PAC activities to be reported and acted upon without encumbrances that existed before the re-organization of the LIC. There are no additional dues associated with this membership classification, but members will be asked to renew their advocacy interest membership annually.
We urge you to become involved in ACPA’s regulatory and legislative matters by joining in the LIC today!
