Cornerstone - Fall 2016 - 7

FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD AGC Houston Stronger for Tomorrow As we enter the fall, all indications show that the Houston economy is amazingly resilient as the energy sector continues to be soft. Education facilities, retail and healthcare continue to lead the majority of the commercial construction activity. The best news is that our members still are reporting robust work programs. The Houston metropolitan area is projected to grow in population from 19 to 39 percent over the next 14 years, depending on which forecast you are reading. AGC Houston must be positioned to support our industry as the built environment will significantly grow with this forecasted growth. Through the outstanding efforts of our committees, the chapter continues to fine-tune our products and services to meet member needs. There are significant challenges to our industry, compounded by this forecasted growth. The workforce shortage is our most significant challenge. Retirements and the lack of an immigration plan are creating an environment where we don't know where our workers are going to come from. Construction Career Collaborative (C3) is trying to make our industry more attractive to a perspective worker by creating a safe jobsite, paying a good wage and offering training to our workers. Your support and participation 2016 Executive Officers Chairman - William H. Scott, III, Linbeck Group, LLC Vice Chairman - James Bryant, Anslow Bryant Construction, Ltd. Secretary - Tadd Tellepsen, Tellepsen Treasurer - Brandon Meyers, SpawGlass Construction, Corp. President/CEO - Jerry Nevlud, AGC Houston Fall 2016 in C3 is vital. We have to do more to overcome this industry problem. The challenge of welcoming diversity into our industry and supporting the growth of new firms is another way to help deal with our workforce challenges. Helping minorityowned firms find the industry support they need presents a great opportunity for them. Our diversity task force is making good progress on assessing the skills needed by these firms and creating a program that supports their growth and development into strong AGC businesses. We need to continue to make sure our state government serves our interests. Your hands-on support of this chapter ensures that our AGC representation in Austin remains strong. Alongside our government affairs committee and the Texas Building Branch, these efforts are key to protecting the interests of the commercial construction industry and decreasing the impact of government regulation. As we gear up for our Strategic Planning session In November, a number of ongoing discussions have commenced, centering on issues such as member parity, funding models, generational and diversity involvement, collaborative environments, sustainable workforce and overall chapter structure. The AGC staff has begun gathering information on these specific areas, BILL SCOTT, III LINBECK GROUP, LLC and developing survey questions to get member input. We must challenge ourselves to make sure Houston AGC is relevant for the present and the future. This conversation has to be frank with all of our members. We have to look in the mirror and face our challenges as we prepare for our future. We have goals for this organization, and it never hurts to remind ourselves of why we join AGC Houston: 1. Our strength to be the voice of the commercial construction industry is only enhanced with each member's participation. 2. Provide services that our members need to be successful in their businesses. 3. Stay true to our commitment in bringing skill, integrity, and responsibility to all we do. Your commitment and participation is what makes AGC Houston the leader of commercial construction in the region. On behalf of the Board of Directors, you have my commitment, as we approach the next planning session, that we will do our utmost to deliver the best plan for the association's future. I am counting on each of you to help us move forward. ■ 2016 Board of Directors Steve Dishman - Brookstone, LP Kevin Duesterhoft - R & M Service Co., Inc.
