CLC Mission Statement
The Construction Leadership Council is committed to providing a forum in which our members can network, exchange ideas and promote both personal and professional development within our industry.


CLC Purpose

  • To be an open forum to exchange ideas.
  • To be an entry vehicle into AGC to promote new member involvement.
  • To foster a strong network among peers.
  • To create and promote industry innovation.
  • To discuss the most important issues and provide feedback to AGC leadership.
  • To help structure AGC for the future.


CLC Structure

The CLC functions as a forum in which members can network, socialize, and exchange ideas on issues facing mid-career construction professionals.  The CLC is open to all interested AGC members without the need of a formal appointment process.  To ensure direction and focus, the CLC has a steering committee, a chair and vice chair.  The steering committee membership rotates on a regular three-year basis, taking into account geographic and industry issues.


CLC Activities

The Steering Committee plans the events for the Construction Leadership Council which consists of:

  • Mardi Gras
  • Build A Brat Picnic
  • Glow Ball Golf Tournament
  • Professional Development Events & Charity Outreach
  • Student Chapter Engagement
