WELCOME TO BALTIMORE! Four legislative leaders from the state of Maryland extend a warm welcome to those attending NSSGA’s Annual Convention and AGG1 in their city of Baltimore. Each express appreciation of the vital role the aggregates industry plays in the nation’s efforts to invest in infrastructure and advancing America’s economic recovery.
THE CHORUS GROWS… Before the 114th Congress was sworn in, new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, cited infrastructure as a potential area of bipartisan agreement between the Republican Congress and the White House. With the clocking ticking on MAP-21, leading members of Congress chime in.
REGULATORY OVER EACH UNDER A CONGRESSIONAL MICROSCOPE It was welcome news when both the House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader listed regulatory reform and oversight as priorities of the 114th Congress. And, it is not just Republicans. Democrats, too, have heard from their constituents that federal red tape slows economic growth.
WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING NOW TO BUILD WORKING RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS In politics, you can’t make a friend overnight. For NSSGA members to increase the likelihood that elected officials will be receptive to the industry’s concerns, members should engage in some advance work – not unlike marketing or making a client contact.
YOUNG LEADERS 2015 ANNUAL MEETING – DON’T MISS YOUR OPPORTUNITY The success of any company is determined by the people who move it forward. NSSGA’s Young Leaders Meeting is the opportunity for your industry professionals, 40 years of age and younger, to develop leadership and management skills that will help them and their companies become successful in the aggregates industry.
