Conduit/WisPAC Update May 2018

ACEC WI News , Advocacy ,

ACEC WI is gearing up for an intense 2018 political season. With the majority of state legislative seats and the Governor’s mansion up for grabs, we are set to have a monster year. We have already sent out nearly $7,000 to political candidates through the Conduit and WisPAC. Participants will receive more frequent government affairs updates from President Chris Klein. Contributors participate in grassroots advocacy (through giving and political engagement), a key part of our legislative strategy.

If this interests you and currently are not participating in the Conduit and PAC please do so here:
