We had a very successful legislative year in 2020’s session. We hired Nathan Ridley to our lobbying team and continued our history of protecting and enhancing the industry. That success is largely due to the relationships with our advocates and legislators. 

This year, two members of our legislature stood out in protecting and helping our industry thrive in this state. As a result, we wanted to honor their work and dedication for defending the free enterprise principles of hard work and open competition that we believe in at ABC. The “Legislator of the Year” award is given by ABC of Tennessee to those legislators who go above and beyond on behalf of the Association and the industry at-large.  More than simply getting our bills across the finish line, these individuals have demonstrated their shared belief in our policy initiatives, our core values, and in the important role that the Commercial Construction Industry plays in Tennessee.  They have done an outstanding job on behalf of our membership.
