Industry Priorities

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the way we communicate with members and AGC chapters, we ask that you please take a few minutes to complete the following AGC of America communications survey by Friday, March 1. The information you provide will help us as we prepare future editions of AGC’s Constructor Magazine, continue to enhance our e-mail newsletters and produce future episodes of AGC’s ConstructorCast podcast. The information will also help us improve our social media communications and development of future informational videos.

On September 20, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released a notice for proposed rulemaking addressing a variety of work zone safety issues near highways. Many of the proposed changes aim to modernize standards that had last been updated in the early 2000s, but substantial changes were proposed for topics such as measuring safety standards, reviews of state DOT’s safety programs, and the use cases for positive protection devices.

Help Us Generate a Comprehensive Outlook for 2024 by Taking the Survey Each year around this time, AGC asks you – our members – to predict what next year will be like for your business. AGC has partnered with Sage to prepare questions that focus on expectations for market performance, hiring, labor market conditions, etc. Please take a moment to complete the survey here. AGC of America will use the survey results to help make the case with elected and appointed officials in support of key member priorities. The more people who complete the survey by Thursday, December 7, the more effective the results will be in supporting our work on your behalf.
