ABC of California Convenes 2021 Virtual Legislative Day
On March 24-25, members from the ABC of California chapters met virtually with over 47 state legislators and their respective staff for full days of meetings and advocacy. We were also able to hear from guest speakers such as Assemblymember Blanca Rubio (D – San Gabriela) and Assemblymember Suzette Valladares (R – Santa Clarita).
This was an event like no other— amid a pandemic, we virtually connected with elected officials such as Senator Anna Caballero (D – Salinas), Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D – Bakersfield), and Assemblymember Richard Bloom (D – Santa Monica) to advocate on industry issues impacting ABC of California members.
Our visits came at a very crucial time in California politics – with the state focused on recovering from the pandemic and job-creation being a hot topic of discussion.
Ultimately, the successful event served as a topline opportunity for ABC of California members to communicate that we are working tirelessly to recruit, educate and upskill California’s future construction workforce.
