What Does It Take To Elect a Pro Masonry/Pro Business Congress?
What does it take to elect a pro masonry/pro business congress? Votes. Money. Industry Knowledge.
With the 2006 mid term elections quickly approaching, MCAA members have a unique opportunity to make their voices heard. In November voters will go to the polls to elect or re-elect all 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and one third of the Senate. It is our responsibility to educate members of Congress as to the needs and concerns of the Masonry Industry. No one is better prepared or positioned, than MCAA members, to effectively address these needs and concerns. There are several issues facing this Congress which will have a direct impact on each and every one of our Members. Some of these issues do not directly impact your business, but they do impact all of you on an individual level and many of your families. Issues such as tax reform, OSHA reform, Social Security reform and Health Care reform, are all items which will have a direct impact on all of you.
During the MCAA Annual Convention MCAA's political action committee, MAC PAC, will host its annual MAC PAC reception. MAC PAC utilizes funds contributed by our members to educate those members of Congress who work hard on behalf of not only the Masonry Industry, but for Business interests as well. By attending our MAC PAC reception and contributing, you enable MCAA to educate those members of Congress who are making laws and passing legislation which could affect your bottom line. OSHA Reform is high on the list of priorities for the MCAA's government affairs department in 2006. With your help we can make sure that OSHA policy is based on sound science and a transparent process. So please stop by our MAC PAC reception on Tuesday March 28th to contribute and do your part in advancing the issues of the Masonry Industry. We look forward to seeing you all there and to making our mark on Washington in 2006.
