Message from the President & CEO
As we enter into the final year of the 2017 Strategic Plan, your staff at AGC MA continues to work diligently to keep the momentum rolling. The result of these efforts have been a wide array of innovative programming, outreach and educational opportunities that support your business objectives.
Our committees are dedicated to adding a broader depth of value to your membership. Through their expertise AGC MA continues to share best practices in all areas of HR through the HR Committee, look to leverage the construction industry network to support and empower women to excel in their careers via the Building Women in Construction Committee, and work to inform and educate the industry in the use of technology in the construction process with the help of the Virtual Design Education Sub-committee and Process Sub-Committee. The Diversity & Inclusion Committee is our most recent addition with a mission to inspire construction companies to create a culture of sustainable business practices that promote a workforce of diverse backgrounds, perspectives and inclusivity.
As always, our staff and previously established committees continue to offer expertise in Labor Relations, Legislative Support, Technical and Safety Education, Community Services and Marketing support.
Last year we welcomed new Chair, Michael O’Brien, Business Unit Leader of Gilbane's Massachusetts and Northern New England Office and Vice Chair, Fran Colantonio, Chairman & CEO, Colantonio, Inc. to the AGC Board of Directors. Both bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their fields and will be a tremendous asset for the association throughout their terms.
In 2018/2019 we experienced strong numbers of member engagement within the association, confirming that our members continue to strive for excellence in safety, diversity, code of conduct and quality and sustainability on a daily basis. With 159 organizational members and growing, we are able to offer more solutions and greater networking opportunities that will encourage interaction, collaboration and exchange.
