the merit shop philosophy

ABC is focused on the merit shop philosophy which instills the principles of free enterprise and open completion. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that ABC members have pro-business environment in which to work and succeed in Georgia and throughout the entire country. We therefore work on our members behalf at the state and federal/national levels.

Click on the links below to learn more about our efforts at each level. Companies have a much stronger voice and great impact unified under ABC more than any one company could have alone. ABC is also one of the few associations that equally represents the entire construction industry in its government affairs efforts. We will not support legislation that may benefit one segment of the industry by hurting another.
