All construction businesses are affected by laws drafted and passed at the national, state, and local levels. Because of this, we regularly dedicate our time and efforts to advocating for all of the companies and individual contractors that we represent.
We know 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. That’s why we regularly work hand-in-hand with legislators to take steps that can positively impact our industry and in turn, your business.
One of 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 that will fight hard for your businesses success, 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.
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.
