Thanking Those Who Keep Us Moving

On Tuesday this week, ACPA national, Chapters, members and allied association partners joined the U.S. House of Representatives’ Transportation & Infrastructure (T&I) Committee in what was aptly called a “Twitterstorm.”

The massive social media effort on the Twitter social media site was intended to recognize and thank people who keep the nation moving, with special emphasis on people working in the fields of transportation and infrastructure.

For ACPA, it was an opportunity to recognize members and others who continue to work on the grade or other workplaces to help the nation manage through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The concrete pavement industry is, of course, essential to keeping the nation moving, so ACPA created a web page and sent emails to staff, members, Chapters and others to encourage participation. 

T&I Committee staff launched the large-scale communications effort at 1 p.m. (EDT), and by the end of the day, hundreds of  messages were posted. The campaign used the tagged message #ToThoseWhoKeepUsMoving to rally participants around the important and timely message.

ACPA Social Media Spotlights Infrastructure Investment

Ahead of and following the pivotal meeting among Congressional leaders and President Donald Trump, ACPA and other advocacy groups turned to social media (notably Twitter and Facebook) to build awareness and inform public officials and others of the critical importance of infrastructure investment. 

Also this week, working with information supplied by Will Wilkins and Lisa Templeton of The Road Information Program, ACPA launched a week-long social media campaign aimed at informing and increasing awareness about the links between highway investments and the economic development, jobs, safety and overall highway and bridge conditions. 

The campaign will continue through Friday, and ACPA is inviting members, chapters and allies to join the discussion.  We have prepared preformatted messages (optimized for Twitter) and easily adaptable to Facebook, LinkedIn, and other channels.  To join the dialogue, click on the Twitter and Facebook links above, or alternatively, cut & paste messages from the special web page at:  http://www.acpa.org/join-the-discussion/.  Questions or comments?  Please contact Bill Davenport (847.423.8703 or bdavenport@acpa.org).
