At last week’s ABC Convention in Long Beach, CA, the ABC National office recognized various levels of commitment to advocacy among the 69 chapters nationwide. Criteria for recognition included:

  • Regular communications to members regarding advocacy issues
  • Dedicated committee structures
  • Improved lobbying efforts and more

Because of it’s high level of commitment to advocacy, the Keystone Chapter brought home a Silver Grassroots Award, making it one of the top chapters in the organization for government affairs and member engagement.

The Keystone Chapter is proud to continue a long tradition of member engagement on policy and issues related to free enterprise. For 60 years, the Chapter staff and members have worked to promote free enterprise and defend the merit shop in Harrisburg and Washington, D.C. This award serves as a testament to the commitment and hard work of ABC members who regularly take part in committee meetings, advocacy events, and outreach to legislators, administrators, and staff.
