Construction Management AGC Student Chapters

AGC Georgia members and staff proudly support students seeking a construction management degree at the following institutions:

Nearly 200 AGC Student Chapters exist nationwide at accredited two-and four-year schools offering programs in construction management, construction tech, and construction-related engineering. Membership in an AGC Student Chapter provides college students with an opportunity to learn, observe and develop their skills with current leaders in the commercial construction industry. These student chapters are supported in a variety of ways at both the local and national AGC level. 

In addition to AGC student chapters engaging in numerous on-campus activities on their own, AGC Georgia will often host field trips to construction projects and conduct site tours, sponsor seminars related to construction, award scholarships to deserving students, provide dinner for student meetings, and deliver programs by young professionals offering “real-world” advice about working in the industry.  

More information about Student Chapters, typical activities they engage in on campus and with local AGC Chapters, student member benefits, steps on how to start a student chapter, a list of AGC student chapters across the U.S., and an AGC Student Chapter Officer’s Guide are available on AGC of America’s website at

AGC Georgia members interested in becoming more involved and volunteering your time with one or more of the four AGC student chapters are encouraged to contact Cherri Watson, the Chapter’s Director of Safety, Education & Workforce Development at or 678.298.4104.

Student Chapter Member Benefit Information

Student Membership in YLP

AGC Georgia offers the opportunity for students holding an active membership in their local AGC Georgia Student Chapter to join the association's Young Leadership Program.  

The group’s governing Council works hard to plan many activities in Central Georgia and metro Atlanta to help its members develop stronger leadership skills and techniques, learn more about the AGC organization, network with other young construction professionals, and begin developing life-long industry relationships. To enroll in YLP and receive full benefits, each of these people pays a $500 membership. Click here to learn more about YLP for employees of member firms.

Members of AGC Georgia Student Chapters associated with Georgia's collegiate construction management programs are offered YLP membership for $25 per year. This membership offers them the same benefits as a regular YLP member, less the complimentary registration to our Annual Convention each June or our Fall Leadership Conference offered each October. 

When an AGC Georgia Student Chapter member graduates, they will be offered the opportunity to maintain their YLP  membership for $100 per year if they go to work for a non-AGC Georgia member. If they gain employment by an AGC Georgia member, we must yield to the preference of that firm's executive team as to whether they will offer the recent graduate the opportunity to continue membership in YLP at the full member company rate.
