Calling AGCMO members ...

Cruise time is 6:30-8:30 pm.  Don't be late or you will miss the boat! 


Missouri Governor Mike Parson to speak at Lunch on March 19
Michael L. Parson was sworn in as Missouri's 57th Governor on June 1, 2018 by Supreme Court Judge Mary R. Russell.  He came into the role of governor with a longtime commitment to serving others with over 30 years of experience in public service.   It is no secret Governor Parson is an ally to transportation and infrastructure funding and workforce development.  He will provide insight from his administration. 



Retired NASCAR Driver Kenny Wallace
After lunch on Tuesday, St. Louis native and retired NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace will speak.  Kenny Wallace (born August 26, 1963) is an American race car driver and former reporter for Fox NASCAR.  He is retired from NASCAR after a 2015 Xfinity Series race at Iowa, where he competed in the No. 20 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing in a one race deal.  In a career spanning 25 years in NASCAR, Wallace had nine wins, all occurring in the Xfinity Series. Now retired from NASCAR competition, he continues to race on local dirt tracks across the country as a hobby.

Industry Roundtables 
This Tuesday afternoon session will answer burning questions about technology, safety, MoDOT, diversity/inclusion, advocacy, human resources, employee perks and retention, recruiting and workforce development, training and labor.  You will have the opportunity to participate in several small group discussions, so be sure you and your co-workers divide and conquer.  Details are being finalized.

Exhibit Space Available  
Exhibit space will be available for Tuesday, March 19.  Exhibitors will set up in the Convention Center Concourse. 

AGCMO PAC Auction - Support the PAC! 
A well-funded PAC is essential to a successful advocacy program.  The PAC fund balance is cyclical in that it ebbs and flows based upon election cycles.  Thanks to the generosity of our members, AGCMO was able to invest almost $200,000 in the 2018 elections and still have a nice PAC balance afterward.  We're excited to rebuild the PAC in order to be ready for the 2020 elections, which will include a Governor, Lt. Governor, Treasurer and Attorney General race.  Please take a moment to consider making a donation in 2019 - whether you donate an item or make a cash contribution.  Our history of donated items is outstanding:  special events, home decor, sporting events tickets, guided hunts, electronics, firearms, golf packages, golf accessories, framed prints, etc.  We'll even shop for you! No donation is too big or too small.  Please let us know how you can help and plan to attend the Auction.  The Ritchie Bros. Auctioneering crew will be on hand.
