ABC is the AMA or AARP of the construction industry. As a member, your voice is heard in local, state, and national government. Our South Florida commercial construction trade association has full-time professional legislative staff at the chapter level (to interface with local government) as well as in Tallahassee and Washington, DC. NOBODY does more, invests more and contributes more to government affairs and political campaigns on behalf of the commercial construction industry than ABC.
Known as “The Voice of Commercial Construction,” ABC’s ranking as one of the most influential organizations in the country by the U.S. Congress (according to surveys of congressional staff and members by Fortune Magazine) helps us stand guard to protect you and your business’ rights in legislative and regulatory areas.
Both Local State and Federal Representation
In our chapter region alone, we have seven county commissions, seven school districts, seven county building departments, four significant ports, three major airports, countless municipal offices, and special districts. Local government impacts our members on multiple levels every day, and it’s our goal to represent the best interests of the industry. As a chapter member, you have seven registered lobbyists representing your interests in Tallahassee, FL.
