And the Chapter of the Year Award Go To… Carolinas AGC!
Everyone loves to be honored for their outstanding efforts — even Carolinas AGC. And thanks to the support from our incredible members, Carolinas AGC was able to capture the AGC of America Chapter of the Year Award in the large/over $2.5M category. This is the second win for CAGC, also capturing the title in 1999. (Most chapters — 89 in total — never win Chapter of the Year once let alone twice.)
The AGC of America Chapter of the Year Award recognizes chapters that have developed outstanding programming and excelled at achieving tangible accomplishments during the calendar year. Chapters are recognized in three categories: small (under $1M); medium ($1M – under $2.5M); and large (over $2.5M).
Examples of what made CAGC stand out in 2019 include:
The major expansion of the Build Your Career program
Big wins in the legislative arenas which positively impacted the construction industry
Growth in the CAGC Young Leaders group
More than 90 events with record-breaking attendance
New diversity initiatives
Growth in the CAGC budget
Relocation of our Charlotte office to better-suited space for the needs of our members and staff.
AGC President Dirk Elsperman presented the distinguished award to CAGC President and CEO Dave Simpson and CAGC Executive Committee Members Paul Mashburn, Casey Schwager, Charlie Wilson and Mark Johnnie during the 2019 National and Chapter Leadership Conference on Monday, September 23, at the AGC Chapter Awards Dinner at Union Station in Washington, DC.
“What a great honor and team effort by our CAGC Board of Directors, our Foundation Trustees, our staff and our 800-company member family,” said President and CEO Dave Simpson.
We’re grateful to our members who support CAGC’s initiatives, participate in our programs, and make the Carolinas’ construction industry such an amazing environment to work in.
