The Voice of the Railroad Construction Industry

NRC Grassroots Program

The NRC's grassroots program was created to invite United States Congressmen to visit NRC Member facilities and construction project sites. These visits give the Members of Congress firsthand knowledge of the rail industry and demonstrate how rail contractors and suppliers are positively affecting the rail industry and the local and national economy.

Member Companies gain positive publicity, foster good relationships with their congressional members, and build strong contacts for the NRC to utilize when advocating for rail industry issues on Capitol Hill.

These congressional visits are coordinated and executed by the NRC staff with little work done by the host NRC Member Company.  If your company is interested in hosting your Congressman for a visit, please contact Mike McGonagle at to begin the process.

Take a look at some of our past events to see the great meetings with Congressional members hosted by NRC Members:
