MCA is very active in Industry Advocacy. Through our Government Relations Committee, we discuss and recommend appropriate actions primarily with respect to state and local (but also national) legislative, regulatory and legal issues.
- MCA is involved with lobbying groups, including IMSCA (lobbying group for specialty contractor associations) via this committee. Our committee chair Dave Nelson is president of IMSCA effective December 2016.
- Bridget Dougherty is our lobbyist at the state and local levels. She is supported by Morrill and Associates in her watch of Springfield.
- The MCA has its own political action fund (MIPAC), where we can make donations to state and local candidates.
