Welcome to AGC Georgia
For visitors looking to learn more about AGC Georgia, we are the leading, statewide professional trade association representing the commercial construction industry in Georgia. We are one of 89 chapters affiliated with the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC of America) representing over 27,000 firms nationwide. Our collective voice and clout at the national, state and local level is unmatched by other groups, giving us a clear advantage in advocating policies and programs to protect what is in the best interest of member firms and the industry.
Two years after the coronavirus pandemic struck, the U.S. construction industry is still experiencing multiple impacts. Unprecedented increases in materials costs, supply-chain disruptions, and an increasingly tight labor market have made life difficult for contractors and project owners alike. AGC of America's Inflation Alerts are great resources to help inform project owners, government officials, and the general public about these impacts on construction. The current version (April 2022) is the sixth update of that Alert—an indication that the situation is far from “normal.”
NOTE: As of 6:00 pm March 23, the room block at the AGC Georgia Annual Convention is sold out. Our team is working through the reservations to be sure all firms that have multiple rooms intend to use them. We will work through a wait list of those who reach out to us with a desire to be added. When you visit the below linked webpage to Learn More, you'll find information in the Room reservation section on nearby properties.
The AGC Georgia team is excited to invite you and your family and your colleagues to the 2022 Annual Convention. The event opened for registration on March 23!
The Annual Convention will be held Thursday, June 9 through Sunday, June 12, 2022 at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Miramar Beach, FL.
During the weekend, AGC Georgia will recognize winners of the AGC Build Georgia Award program and the Corporate Safety Award program.
Full details, along with a schedule of speakers, social outings, etc. can be found at the below link. Our team looks forward to seeing you on the Coast!
2022 7-part Skills Challenge Series
AGC Georgia Skills Challenge series was a big hit in 2021 with over 1,900 student competitors and student observers from 80 schools attending. Our team is excited to announce the schedule for the 2022 Skills Challenges as shown below.
The core competitions for the Challenges are Carpentry, Electrical, Masonry, Plumbing, and Welding with Blueprint Reading, Roofing, Fine Furniture/ Woodworking, HVAC, and other disciplines being offered at select Challenges.
The annual events are held in the fourth quarter of each calendar year to prepare students for the regional SkillsUSA events in January. Winners of the regional events move on to the state SkillsUSA competitions held each March at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
We are encouraging schools to go ahead and make plans to bring both competitors and observers to Skills Challenges this fall! It's also time for industry firms to start mapping out their team's support for the series. Official sponsorship requests will begin in July!
