AGC Georgia Marketplace, including update from Washington, D. C.
Join us for hors d’oeuvres at the AGC Georgia Marketplace on Wednesday, November 17 at the Sonesta in Duluth. It’s a great time to visit in a relaxed environment with industry friends and make new connections that can lead to business opportunities. We are expecting dozens of industry exhibitors, including general and specialty contractors, suppliers and service providers.
Prior to the Marketplace, AGC of America’s Jimmy Christianson, Vice President, Government Relations will present The Good, The Bad and the Ugly: A Construction Industry Insider Update from Washington, D.C.
Believe it or not, there’s both good and bad news for the construction industry coming from D.C. In 2020, AGC of America and its chapters worked to successfully make and keep construction essential in most of the country, fought for the industry’s eligibility for Paycheck Protection Program loans, PPP loan deductibility and timely loan forgiveness, and additional resources for infrastructure investment. But 2021 has brought new leadership to D.C., and with it, new opportunities and challenges. Jimmy will share how the sausage is being made when it comes to federal COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandates, the $1.2 trillion bipartisan (physical) infrastructure bill, and the ~$3.5 trillion human infrastructure bill, and other policies potentially impacting the construction industry out of Washington.
Every week brings new reports of materials costs hitting record highs, while lead times lengthen or become ever more uncertain. AGC of America released a revised issue of their sought after Construction Inflation Alert
. This document is intended to help members explain to owners, government officials, and others, what is happening and what all parties can do to minimize the damage.
