ACMA's 2019 Infrastructure Day
The fourth annual Infrastructure Day will take place in Washington, D.C. from February 13-14, 2019. We are monitoring the ongoing partial government shutdown and any potential impact on this event. At this time all activities, including sessions and congressional meetings, are as scheduled.
Register today! Space is limited.
In the halls of Congress and in agency offices in Washington, D.C. and around the country, the government touches our built environment every day. Join your fellow ACMA members in Washington to meet Members of Congress and agency leadership to educate them on the valuable capabilities of composites in revitalizing the nation’s degrading infrastructure. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet with elected and agency officials and advocate on behalf of your company and the composites industry.
The Administration and Congress are planning to make significant investments in revitalizing the nation's degrading infrastructure. Infrastructure Day allows us to secure the composites industry's stake in the policy discussion to ensure 21st century infrastructure improvements are made with 21st century materials.
Together we can build a brighter future for composites and America.
Prospective meetings are as follows:
- Federal Highway Administration
- Department of Energy
- Environmental Protection Agency
- U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
- Department of Agriculture
- Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works
- Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources
- House Committee on Energy and Commerce
- House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure
- Your Senators and Representatives
"The ACMA Infrastructure Day is a tremendous opportunity for our company to speak directly to Congress on the legislation and policies that will shape our future infrastructure. This is a rare opportunity to educate our government leaders on the benefits of composites and create awareness of how our industry can help create a longer lasting infrastructure using American made products, which is good for the economy and the country. Our message was very well received"
Scott Holmes, Director of Business Development, Highland Composites
"ACMA's Infrastructure Day on Capitol Hill allowed us to educate our congressional leaders about the benefits that our materials and technology offer for infrastructure applications. Visiting key offices every year demonstrates to the elected officials and staffer that we are serious about our message. It is also important that we, as businesses and taxpayers, remind them of their oversight duties to ensure that provisions of the FAST Act and WRDA pertaining to new technologies are carried out by the responsible Federal agencies."
Scott Reeve, President, Composite Advantage
