AGC’s success – both at the statehouse and with Administration officials – is reliant on members’ support of AGC of Ohio Action, our political action committee (PAC). The PAC allows AGC to lend support to legislators and statewide office holders that support industry issues.

Send personal or PAC checks to: AGC of Ohio Action, Attn. Andrea Ashley, 1755 Northwest Blvd., Columbus, OH 43212. (Make checks payable to AGC Action. Corporate contributions are not permitted.  Sole proprietors, partnerships, and unincorporated associations, which include limited liability companies under Ohio campaign finance law, may use company funds to contribute; such contributions should include the name of the entity and individual making the contribution.)

Direct questions about AGC of Ohio Action and AGC’s legislative efforts to Andrea Ashley at andrea@agcohio.comor (614) 486-6446.
