MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Business Council of Alabama has released its 2016 book of state and federal activities, Unfinished Business, which chronicles events of Alabama’s premier business advocacy organization since the release of The Next New Start last year.
Prepared by the BCA staff and published by the BCA Press, the 268-page book includes state and federal legislative agendas, the BCA’s legislative advocacy, a written and photographic record of BCA events and activities, press releases, state and federal blogs, published Business Advocates, and published op-eds.
Unfinished Business is the historical record of the BCA’s substantial work during the second year of the 2014-18 legislative quadrennium that saw passage of bills to encourage and enhance private-sector job growth and create a world-class education system.
“Unfinished Business is the seventh annual book to chronicle our enduring commitment to the legislative process,” BCA President and CEO William J. Canary said. “It’s such a great tool for us to describe our value to members. And it sets out our plans of what we will be doing.”
Unfinished Business also highlights the important relationship between the BCA and its national partners, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, and the enduring grassroots link with the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama.
“Our state and national partners are important to the overall success of our endeavors in the State House and in Congress,” Canary said.
Unfinished Business was released at the BCA’s Governmental Affairs Conference held Aug. 5-7 at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa. An electronic version can be downloaded here.

The BCA is Alabama’s exclusive affiliate to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.
