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 typically 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 to sign up today.
