Districts Drive Legislative Offense

AGC of California districts helps drive the organization’s legislative offense strategy by building relationships with key elected officials across the state. Over the past several months, AGC of California districts have been particularly busy inviting officials to present and discuss industry priorities at local board meetings. These opportunities are an instrumental piece of the puzzle in building relationships with officials while also educating them on the benefits of our industry.
