When you look at things from a high altitude view, you come to see that all construction businesses are affected by laws drafted and passed at the national, state and local levels. It is for this reason that AGC of Washington regularly dedicates time and effort into advocating for all of the companies and individual contractors that we represent.
At AGC, we understand that there are a number of factors that can impact your business negatively including tax changes, government regulations and lack of access to skilled workers. This is reason one why we regularly work hand-in-hand with legislators to take steps that can positively impact our industry and in turn, your business.
Among the most overlooked aspects of an AGC membership is access to legal services and insider insights. When you join the AGC of Washington, you not only gain an advocate who will fight hard for the success of your business, you also have a team of lobbyists working hard to represent you. In fact, we have professional staff members in Washington, D.C., Olympia, Seattle, Tacoma, Yakima and Bellingham.
And it doesn’t stop there. In addition to legislative representation, we also have members who serve on a number of industry boards and decision-making panels. These individuals work hard to ensure your business interests are at the front and center of any discussion. Our industry knowledge and expertise can save you time, money and energy all while providing you access to legislative and legal resources.
