FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MARCH 14, 2013
MONTGOMERY— The Business Council of Alabama on Tuesday officially launched BCA Connect, a new app designed for iPhones and iPads to easily connect BCA members with members of the Alabama legislature and available free of charge on the iTunes store.
BCA Connect is provided as a public service on behalf of the members of the Business Council of Alabama, the state’s most effective advocate for business at the Alabama Legislature. This app gives the user an easy platform to contact members of the 2013 Alabama Legislature.
If the need arises to immediately communicate with a legislator, simply tap on their face or name to open their profile, and then tap on their email or phone number to contact them. In addition, this call to action will also have a direct link to their websites, Twitter feeds and Facebook pages.
“We live in a technology-driven world where information is expected immediately and at the touch of a button,” said BCA president and CEO William J. Canary. “When business owners receive a legislative alert to get in touch with their elected officials they now have a tool that provides all the information they need at their fingertips.”
BCA Connect includes complete listings of the House and Senate members, and catalogs all committees and their membership.
The Business Council of Alabama is Alabama’s foremost voice for business. The BCA is a non-partisan statewide business association representing the interests and concerns of nearly one million working Alabamians through its member companies and its partnership with the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama. BCA is Alabama’s exclusive affiliate to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.
