The American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) has hired Melanie Bassett as a regional director, focusing primarily on the Midwest. Based in St. Louis, Mo., she is responsible for field activities including membership, leadership and grassroots development, fundraising, member services and ARTBA representation at industry events.

Before joining ARTBA, Bassett worked as executive director of congressional and public affairs for the Great Lakes Regional office of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, based in Chicago, Ill. This region included oversight of resources in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In this post, she was responsible for cultivating and expanding the organization’s grassroots and political network of corporate members, local chambers and associations. She also worked directly with Members of Congress and numerous top level executives on legislative priorities and advocacy issues.

Prior to her work with the Chamber, Bassett was the Midwest regional political manager for Associated Builders and Contractors. She expanded the association’s advocacy efforts in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio, and was part of the team that developed a one million dollar political action committee to support pro-business candidates.

Bassett also has held the role of consultant for a variety of political and issue advocacy campaigns throughout the Midwest.
