Public Relation Services
The current public relations theme of the association is "Rebuilding Kansas," and signs and bumper stickers are available at cost through the state office. The signs are red/white/blue painted aluminum for placement at the start of projects on the road right-of-way, project entrances, or at office locations.
An active KCA Public Relations Committee helps members write and place news releases in local papers on the start-up of local projects, emphasizing the economic impact of the project, and the number of jobs created.
The committee has also developed a standard speech for use by members when talking before civic organizations on the subject of the economic impact of the highway program and other public works spending.
The association puts its members in contact with others in the construction industry. Such meetings and events provide a line of communication between the association and its services and the membership and its needs.
To encourage a spirit of mutual benefit and business interaction, and to foster good networking opportunities among the members of the association, KCA-sponsored social activities include the annual Summer Fest in June, the annual state convention in January, monthly social periods before each highway letting, the annual Legislative Luncheon during the session, and the annual division meetings. KCA members also have the opportunity to attend the AGC national convention and midyear meetings.
