Members meeting with U.S. Representative Paul Ryan.It all happens at the grassroots level

Grassroots is important for any organization because it is at the foundation of success with policy. Individuals or groups with common interests, such as free enterprise, work together to advance issues affecting those interests. It's only through grassroots, member support that progress can be made on issues such as prevailing wage and project labor agreements.

Grassroots is effective for responding to long-standing issues or new issues that can surface quickly. ABC not only notifies members about proposed law changes, it helps identify key legislators, develops issue papers and coordinates efforts to ensure that merit contractors are an effective political force that can affect the final outcomes of proposed changes in policy, statute or law.

ABC has many resources for members to get involved in the grassroots, including:
