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 88 chapters affiliated with the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC of America) representing over 26,000 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.
AGC Georgia is busy making plans to host you, your family and your colleagues at the Westin in Hilton Head Island from Thursday, June 6 to Sunday, June 9. While our room block and registration portal won't open until late February, we hope you'll mark your calendar and begin making plans to join us on the coast!
Our keynote speaker is Green Beret Commander Mark Nutsch. He was portrayed by actor Chris Hemsworth in the movie 12 Strong and in a New York best-selling book, Horse Soldiers. In October 2001 following the attacks on 9/11, Nutsch led a heroic 12-man team of U.S. Special Forces on a covert mission to Afghanistan, where they would ride to war on horses to fight the enemy—side by side with their Muslim counterparts—capture the strategic city of Mazar-i-Sharif within a matter of weeks, and successfully overthrow the Taliban.

Great way to learn more about the legislative process and meet your representatives
All members are asked to mark their calendars from 8:00 and 10:00 am and plan to join us on Thursday, February 28, 2019 for our annual Building Georgia Legislative Event on the 2nd floor of the State Capitol building. We proudly co-host this event with the Georgia chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). Our associations will offer a casual breakfast for all participants and legislators near the rotunda of the Gold Dome. This will be a great time to connect with legislators, statewide elected officials and governmental agency representatives as they walk through the area preparing to start their day.

AGC Georgia President Kevin Kuntz is looking forward to meeting with members around the state during his upcoming President's Tour. If your firm is headquartered, has a branch office or a jobsite in and around one of these regional meetings, please bring your team and join the conversation!
