Advocacy and Industry Representation

AGC Georgia maintains a visible and active presence throughout the year with elected and appointed state officials and policy makers advocating for what is in the best interest of our members and the commercial construction industry. A similar effort led by experienced and respected lobbyists representing AGC of America is implemented at the national level benefiting 26,000 member firms in the 92 chapter network across the U.S.

During each year's session of the Georgia General Assembly, AGC Georgia is front and center regarding pending legislation, proposed policy changes, and other regulations that can negatively impact your firm and our industry. In addition to maintaining a strong defensive posture, AGC Georgia is also very proactive in identifying opportunities to better the business climate for your company. 

The combined advocacy efforts by AGC at the state and national level ensure a strong, influential and collective voice for our members and industry allowing us to achieve greater impact.

You can contact Mark Woodall, Director of Governmental Affairs, at 678.298.4116 or woodall@agcga.org to learn more about our legislative and advocacy efforts and opportunities to get more involved.
“AGC Georgia is a trusted partner in helping us develop the State Construction Manual. I appreciate the countless hours spent by your members and staff working to help improve our state procurement process. AGC’s understanding of our state’s construction industry has made you an invaluable and knowledgeable resource to GSFIC.”
Marvin Woodward, Deputy State Property Officer Construction Division, GSFIC

“When a legislator wants to know how a piece of legislation will affect the commercial construction industry, they go to Mark Woodall with AGC Georgia. He does a great job representing the Chapter and the needs and interests of both large and small contractors throughout the state. In my experience, AGC Georgia’s legislative positions are based on sound policy decisions that make good business sense.”
Former Georgia Senator John Bulloch
