krystal-brumfield-head-shotDear Members and Friends:

The 2017 Infrastructure Week themed Time to Build kicked off on May 15 in Washington, D.C., with an event featuring business and association leaders as well as Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao discussing the new technologies, projects and infrastructure in the 21st century.

As we embark on this national week of education and advocacy let's encourage policymakers to invest in the projects, technologies and policies necessary to put America back in the fast lane. It's #TimetoBuild!

 

Sincerely,
