Message from AGC MA CEO, Bob Petrucelli
As we continue to evaluate the coronavirus and its effects in Massachusetts and on the AGC MA Membership, we want to make you aware of updates regarding AGC MA’s response. At this time, one of our primary goals as your Association is to support our members in maintaining a safe and healthy workforce.
Our response is preventative and is designed to keep our members, our staff and their families healthy. Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, AGC’s office will be limited to the public through March 31, 2020. During this period, we will continue to operate during regular hours (8:00 AM – 5:00 PM EST) and all employees will be available and responsive for the entire workday, every day. While some staff may be working on site, all are being encouraged to work remotely whenever possible.
Operationally, you may expect full and complete business continuity, delivered virtually. Many of you may already be implementing similar procedures, and AGC MA has made a point to provide all employees with the appropriate tools and technologies to continue “business as usual.” All expectations of your AGC MA will be met without exception.
In an overabundance of caution and on the recommendation of state and local officials, we are postponing all in-person events that were scheduled for the coming weeks. We will follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as, state and local health departments, to determine when we can begin to lift these measures.
Additionally, to practice further “social distancing,” any AGC MA committee meetings that were scheduled to be held over the next few weeks will be held via conference call or through the ZOOM platform. Committee members will be contacted with the appropriate information.
Our priority is the health and safety of our industry, co-workers, communities, family, and friends. We feel that it is our duty to actively participate in the effort to reduce the spread of coronavirus, as we continue to lead the industry and build the region.
If you have any questions regarding these updates, please do not hesitate to reach out. We will continue to provide updates as circumstances change.
Thank you and stay well,
Robert L. Petrucelli
President & CEO
