MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Business Council of Alabama has released its 2015 book of state and federal activities, The Next New Start. The Next New Start chronicles events of Alabama’s premier business advocacy organization since the release of last year’s book, The Capstone of Progress.
Prepared by the BCA staff and published by the BCA Press, the 244-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.
“The Next New Start is the sixth annual book to chronicle our enduring commitment to the legislative process,” said BCA President and CEO William J. Canary. “The Next New Start is the historical record of our substantial work during the first year of the 2014-2018 legislative quadrennium to see the passage bills that will boost private-sector job growth and create a world-class education system.”
Previous books were produced in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.
The Next New Start 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.
The Next New Start was released at the BCA’s Governmental Affairs Conference held Aug. 14-17 at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa. An electronic version can be downloaded here.
