Topic: Leaving a Legacy
Speaker: Melinda Patrician
The executive director of the AGC Education of Research Foundation will give an overview of the foundation’s 50-year commitment to education through scholarship programs and support of faculty initiatives and research. Started in 1968 by AGC leaders who believed that it would be through support of the next generation that the commercial construction industry would leave a lasting legacy, the foundation has grown to a $10 million endowment and 138 separate funds. How the foundation can support the work that chapters are doing is a continuing conversation that Melinda would like to explore during her visit.
