AGC Welcomes New Members to AGC’s Environmental Forum Steering Committee

AGC is pleased to announce the appointment of five new members and two associate members to serve on its Environmental Forum Steering Committee through the AGC Conventions in 2017 and 2018.  Members of the steering committee have direct access to federal regulatory officials, influence over AGC’s environmental agenda, and a means to exchange valuable information with one another and industry peers.  AGC also acknowledges the invaluable contributions of those members who recently completed their terms on the steering committee.

The AGC Environmental Forum Steering Committee will meet on Sept. 3-4, 2015, with several offices of the federal regulatory agencies on environmental compliance issues.  You can meet the Steering Committee members at AGC’s 2015 Contractors Environmental Conference (CEC) on Sept. 2-3, in Arlington, Va., right across the river from our nation’s capital.  The steering committee helps form the educational programs at that conference and also will open sessions and introduce speakers.  If you would like more information on the steering committee and how you can get involved, please read the “About the Steering Committee” section below.

About the Steering Committee

The steering committee oversees AGC’s Environmental Forum that includes all of the AGC members and chapter professionals who (1) subscribe to AGC’s Environmental Observer newsletter on environmental issues and (2) have expressed a specific interest in those issues.  Forum members also can opt to participate in AGC’s Environmental e-Forum.  AGC launched the Forum in 2005 to increase the interaction among these individuals and to improve the opportunities for them to participate in AGC policymaking on environmental matters.

The steering committee members represent horizontal and vertical construction as well as municipal and utilities work.  Together, they have expertise and interest in the environmental issues that impact the daily work of construction-from compliance and environmental management to green construction. In addition, they have represented AGC membership in meetings with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other organizations.  On a routine basis, they play a key role in advancing AGC’s environmental advocacy, education and outreach efforts.  Steering committee members volunteer to serve a three year term.

AGC’s Environmental Forum welcomes all AGC members and chapter staff who have an interest in the environmental issues impacting the construction industry. It’s FREE to join the Forum; go to http://www.agc.org/EnviroForum to sign up today.
