Get Involved in Politics & Keep Your Business Growing!
Advancing and defending the principles of the merit shop in the construction industry.
Providing members with the opportunity to succeed.
Associated Builders and Contractors works nationally and locally to advocate for the merit shop industry. ABC Keystone supports the “merit shop message” which is a philosophy that encourages open competition and free enterprise in the construction industry. Our chapter is involved locally, at the state level, and nationally, to protect and advance our members’ priorities.
ABC Keystone encourages its members to get involved with legislative, political and regulatory proposals that impact the merit shop construction industry. We provide resources for members to better understand, support, and voice opinions on legislation.

Getting Into Politics Will Keep You in Business!
The cornerstone of every successful political campaign has been hard-working people who roll up their sleeves and get in the trenches, demonstrating their commitment to a cause they believe in. And ABC members are committed to free enterprise and defending the merit shop. While you’re busy building America and signing paychecks, we’re working to shape policy that encourages business growth and job creation. From time to time, we need help. So, we have a number of ways to get involved, from the grassroots level on up. Because, as the saying goes, “get into politics or get out of business!”
Please contact Brent Sailhamer, Director of Government Affairs at ABC Keystone, to start getting involved.
