Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.
'Taking Action' at the conventions
Business Roundtable is pressing its policy agenda in advertising at the National Republican Convention in Tampa, Fla., and the National Democratic Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
A full-page ad (available here in The Tampa Tribune and Charlotte Observer, as well as convention-specific publications, declares, “America’s CEOs to Washington: It’s Time to Act.” The ad points out the slow growth and high unemployment afflicting the U.S. economy and concludes, “America’s CEOs have a plan for jobs and economic growth. It’s a plan that believes people and our free enterprise system can win in the 21stCentury economy. See our plan at www.brt.org/TakingAction.”
In addition, BRT bought radio spots on AM and FM stations in both markets. Also in Tampa, BRT President John Engler will participate in a Bloomberg panel on international trade on Tuesday, and then appear on the Mike Huckabee radio show at noon, which will be streamed live.
