Why did you get involved with AGC's Specialty Contractors Committee and the National Construction Leadership Committee?

I joined the national AGC specialty contractors committee and the national CLC steering committee in order to give back to an organization that has done so much for me, as well as the relationships that come with groups.


What benefits have you experienced being involved at both the national and chapter level?

Being able to get out of our own tunnel vision is crucial to the success of any business/person. Without being able to step into the views of a client, another contractor/trade, engineer, architect, etc. on the other side of the table you cannot see the whole picture. Through networking of others both locally and nationally, AGC has provides opportunities to a thorough continuing education.


In your opinion, what can others gain by engaging with AGC of America or the committee / forum you're engaged with?

Training and education, relationships/friendships, and business opportunities.


What has been your favorite in-person AGC event?

CONEXPO-CON/AGC 2023 was a tremendous event! The education sessions were wonderful and all the equipment at the show was incredible. It was also neat to see the new MSG Sphere near completion, and the new F1 facility being built.
