NRMCA Urges Members to Host Plant Tours in August
Each August, Members of Congress recess to their districts for a month of local activities. Congressional staff are already planning the legislators' schedules and those schedules should include you! One of the best ways to build relationships with your Member of Congress is by hosting a plant tour; an opportunity to spend time with your congressional representative and lay the foundation for advocating for the ready mix industry. Members of Congress love these because they are educational and activity-based (they make great photo opportunities) while providing them not only an opportunity to learn about issues facing local businesses, but also to meet many of the employees at the plant.
If you are interested in hosting your Member of Congress for a plant tour, please contact Andrew Tyrrell for more information. He will help you contact your congressional office and offer guidance on how to host a plant tour.
