Political Action Committees
AGC Georgia supports pro-construction, pro-business candidates through our Political Action Committee (PAC). During each election cycle as well as in off years, individuals at member firms voluntarily contribute monies to the PAC for distribution to qualified legislative candidates seeking election to the Georgia General Assembly and statewide offices. AGC Georgia's nine member Board of Trustees determines which candidates receive contributions to their campaigns.
A tremendous amount of effort goes into this process including getting acquainted with new candidates and helping educate them about issues impacting the construction industry.
In addition, AGC Georgia partners with AGC of America to gain member support for their nonpartisan PAC. Eligible employees of member firms can voluntarily provide financial contributions to support candidates running for national elected office. These candidates regardless of party affiliation must demonstrate an understanding of the construction industry and the specific needs, interests and concerns of AGC member firms and their employees. The AGC of America's PAC is one of the most recognized and well-respected in Washington, DC. It consistently ranks among the top trade association PACs in the nation.
AGC of America’s PAC is governed by a board of trustees working to represent the needs of all 92 chapters. AGC Georgia member, Chris Sheridan, COB of Sheridan Construction in Macon, is Georgia's delegate to the federal PAC and Dan Baker, President of Duffey Southeast, Inc. is a member of the national PAC's Board of Trustees, representing Florida, Georgia and Puerto Rico.
