AGC Georgia Annual Convention

The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa
June 6-9, 2019

Guest Speaker presented by

Commander Mark Nutsch
Green Beret Commander Portrayed in the Movie 12 Strong & New York Times Best-Seller, Horse Soldiers

As portrayed by actor Chris Hemsworth in the major motion picture, 12 Strong, Mark Nutsch (aka Mitch Nelson in the film) shares lessons learned in the now-declassified saga of a U.S. Special Forces team that overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to help achieve a historic military victory.

Mark Nutsch shares the true-life story of helping lead what is considered the most successful unconventional warfare campaign in modern history, a victory that changed the course of our country and the world.

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. Now a consultant to Special Operations Command, he earned a Bronze Star with valor for his bravery.

On stage, Nutsch enthralls audiences with an edge-of-your-seat, behind-the-scenes account of how this almost unbelievable event played out, impacted the world, and earned them the gratitude of a nation. He also shares perspectives on preparing his team of “guerrilla diplomats” for ever-evolving on-the-ground circumstances, and how resourcefulness, inventiveness, and commitment, along with adaptability, a diverse team, and a capacity to persevere enabled them to successfully accomplish their mission.

Both business registrants and their spouse/guest are encouraged to participate in Saturday morning's Awards Breakfast. Registration is required for spouses/guests.

After Party presented by

Immediately after adjourning from our closing dinner on Saturday evening, all guests are invited to The After Party, featuring John Berry.

The singer-songwriter rose to stardom on the country charts of the 1990s. His annual Christmas tour, entering its 22nd year, brightens the holidays for thousands, as does his electrifying rendition of O’ Holy Night. During the 90s and early 2000s, John placed 20 singles on the county charts, 6 of which went Top 5, with Your Love Amazes Me, scoring a #1 on the Billboard and Radio & Records Country Chart as well as Standing on the Edge of Goodbye and She’s Taken a Shine earning the #1 slot in Radio & Records. He has earned multiple Gold and Platinum records over the years. He's recently released two new albums and launched a weekly syndicated cable TV show, Songs and Stories with John Berry

Who's Coming to the Coast?


Welcome from AGC Georgia President, Kevin Kuntz

I'm looking forward to a great convention in Hilton Head Island, and I hope you, your colleagues and your family will make plans to join us. 

Our golf tournament always gets us started, and this year it will take place at 9:00 am on Thursday, June 6. Make sure you plan your arrival for Wednesday if you plan to play in the tournament. Later on Thursday, we'll reconvene for our Welcome Dinner. All members and their families are invited, we'll even have dedicated children's activities available. It's going to be casual and FUN!  

All business registrants are invited to gather on Friday morning for our Annual Meeting and then join us for the Beach Bash luncheon sponsored by CompTrust AGC Mutual Captive Insurance Company. Later this evening, attendees are encouraged to explore the area and have dinner on their own. YLP and EA members are invited to their respective dinners at the resort on Friday evening.

On Saturday morning, we'll host our award ceremony and recognize the best of the best construction projects built by our member contractors and present corporate safety awards. The Annual Dinner closes the convention in eloquent style on Saturday evening. The 2019 Skill, Integrity and Responsibility (SIR) Award is presented at this program and the new officers and board members are installed. This year, I have the special privilege of presenting the SIR Award to Mike Kenig, Vice Chairman of Holder Construction Company and passing the gavel to  Brian Daniel, President of the Carroll Daniel Construction Company.

Immediately following the business of our closing dinner, please plan to join us for a fun After Party!  This will be a great way to close out what's shaping up to be a fantastic convention! Can't wait to see you and your family on the coast!

On June 8, Michael E. "Mike" Kenig, vice chairman of Holder Construction Company in Atlanta, will receive the 2019 AGC Georgia SIR Award. The award recognizes Mr. Kenig's outstanding service, leadership and involvement in the construction community during his distinguished career which continues to exemplify Skill, Integrity and Responsibility.

Cheryle Kuntz Hosts Ladies' Brunch

Ladies attending the Annual Convention who do not wish to attend the Business session on Friday, June 7 are invited to join Cheryle Kuntz for brunch and a hands-on demonstration of an art form called ShardWorx®.

ShardWorx® is art made with glass and resin on a painted surface. It’s a fun, new, and easy way to create a masterpiece and very little skill is required. The secret is the glass! Everyone loves glass and when it’s placed on a painting, the whole picture comes into view!

For a sneak peak on the art process, check out this video.
