The 6th Annual Carolinas AGC (CAGC) Summer Summit and Expo will be held at the Westin Resort on Jekyll Island, Ga. from Thursday, July 26 to Sunday, July 29, 2018. Conference organizers cite numerous reasons for attending — great educational sessions, special events that provide attendees quality networking, opportunities for suppliers to showcase their business or services, and the beach. The event is nearly sold out, but there is still time to register.
About the 2018 Summer Summit
Day sessions on Friday, July 27, and Saturday, July 28, are specifically designed for General Contractors, Specialty Contractors, and Suppliers within each division: Highway, Building, and Utility. After the breakout sessions on Saturday morning, registered attendees will unite to celebrate the CAGC Foundation Safety & Scholarship Winners, Top Young Leaders Award Ceremony, and a keynote address on “Resilient Leadership: Prepare Today to Prevail Tomorrow” Lt.

Speakers from South Carolina include Christy Hall, Secretary of Transportation, Leland Colvin, PE, Deputy Secretary for Engineering, and Claude Ipock, Director of Construction.
Each afternoon, attendees will have plenty of time to relax at the beach or explore the area. Later, attendees can enjoy free evenings mixed with organized special events that allow ample time to network and build new relationships with others.
