Live! From #ACCaugust Round 2 – 2016

During the August recess, ACC’s Political Mobilization activities will be in full swing! Once again, we’ll be fanning out across the country to further our industry’s advocacy goals in a grassroots initiative called #ACCaugust. Through plant tours, in-district meetings, and industry roundtable discussions, we will meet with Members of Congress to raise awareness of the vital importance of our industry and showcase the economic benefits of the business of chemistry where it matters the most—in their districts.

Keep checking back on our progress here on our blog (read our 2016 preview post), on our new Twitter account @AmChemMatters, or our Facebook page. Participate in the experience by joining the conversation using the hashtags #ACCaugust and #ChemistryMatters.

Take the #ACCaugust tour with us! Zoom in and out and pan around to see where we’ve been:

I’m very happy that a small community like Malcom has a major corporation like BASF providing such good jobs. I was fascinated by the diversity of products from this plant. After the tour, I had Q&A with most employees. Thank you BASF for the opportunity to have dialogue with people who couldn’t come to my town meetings. I appreciated the wide variety of questions. –Sen. Charles Grassley
