WASHINGTON, D.C. – Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) today unveiled its new political advocacy action software application (app), ABC Action, which allows users to send letters directly to the offices of federal officials in Washington, D.C. on a mobile device.

“ABC is the first national business association to offer this exciting new political advocacy feature to its members,” said ABC Vice President of Government Affairs Geoff Burr. “With two clicks on their phone or mobile device, ABC members can send a letter to their federal representatives and have their voices heard on policy and regulatory issues that are critical to the construction industry.”

ABC Action allows users to respond to action alerts, stay up-to-date on policy issues, see how their representatives voted, track key votes and share information via email, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

On important issues that require an immediate response, ABC Action users can send an email to a key federal contact or directly phone a federal office. 

The ABC Action app is available in the iTunes and Google Play stores.

Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national association with 72 chapters representing 22,000 merit shop construction and construction-related firms. Visit us at
