We have passed legislation that favors concrete. We have defeated many other bills that would have increased barriers to concrete construction. We’ve converted many projects from wood and steel to concrete. We are working with some of the largest developers in the country to change the way they build. We’ve educated thousands of architects, engineers and developers on the benefits of concrete construction. And we’re changing attitudes and perceptions of decision makers through a comprehensive media relations program.

Show your support for NRMCA’s political action committee (PAC), CONCRETEPAC, with corporate sponsorship. CONCRETEPAC gives a strong voice to the ready mixed concrete industry on Capitol Hill through supporting pro-business, pro-ready mixed concrete federal office candidates. While we raise personal contributions to fund CONCRETEPAC’s political activities through our Gray to Green Program, the PAC is sustained by corporate contributions made by our members to underwrite our administrative operating costs. We invite all NRMCA Producer and Associate Members to consider becoming a CONCRETEPAC corporate sponsor in 2018.

CONCRETEPAC is NRMCA’s bipartisan, multi-candidate federal political action committee. Its goal is to elect pro-business, pro-ready mixed concrete candidates to federal office. As business owners/operators, you know the importance of building a solid customer base that understands and appreciates your product more than your competitors’ product. The halls of Congress are no different and it is vital to our industry that we support candidates running for federal office who understand issues impacting the ready mixed concrete industry. CONCRETEPAC helps to build and maintain effective relationships with key Members of Congress and candidates for Congress. To continue to do this, however, we must be able to speak with you about how CONCRETEPAC can work for you.
