Quick Ways to Stay Connected
The ABC of Michigan staff is very involved in politics in Lansing - and we need your help!
Keep an eye out for ABC Action Alerts. You can sign up
to receive these alerts directly in your email, download the ABC Action App
, watch for special editions of Merit Minute
, and LinkedIn
messages, and more.
Our interactive online Legislative Action Center
also allows you to quickly and easily contact any or all of your state and federal elected officials on issues of key interest to ABC members.
Because ABC of Michigan members have built a culture of engagement, occasionally elected officials will ask for our members' feedback on proposed legislation that affects you and your business. We'll make sure to get these requests to you so that you can engage directly with your legislators.
