    AGC Councils

    Building Council

    The AGC Building Council was formed to serve as a forum for association members to discuss issues of importance to the commercial building industry. The Council will help formulate policy recommendations, serve as an educational resource to owners, legislators and the public and help advance the associations work on building related matters.

    Primary Objectives

    • Build strong relationships with both public and private owners.
    • Identify key issues to track moving forward, including legislation, technology, workforce trends and more.
    • Help formulate policy recommendations for the Board of Directors.
    • Establish sub-committees and workgroups as needed for specific topics, including procurement methods, government affairs, technology, communications, education, etc.

    Who Can Participate?

    This council is open to all AGC member firms and their employees that perform building construction.  We strongly encourage all Building General Contractor members to have at least one employee participate on this council. One of the primary benefits of this group will be the communication and outreach that is done on key issues and we would like to have all voices represented.
