ABC has many valuable resources available to it's members. I my mind one that is extremely important is how through ABC we have a presence at the capital - this is at the State level and the Federal level. We are all busy running our own company's. It's comforting to know we have eyes and ears at the Capital watching out for new rules and regulations that hurt our free enterprise philosophy or over regulate our industry. And fight to repeal existing regulations that over regulate or restrict free enterprise. I had the pleasure to serve on the Board of Directors I saw this work first hand. Steve Knode, A.B.
