FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD

The Challenges Ahead
JAMES BRYANT
ANSLOW BRYANT CONSTRUCTION LTD.

IN LATE SEPTEMBER, JERRY NEVLUD
and I attended the National Chapter
Leadership Conference in Washington,
D.C. This conference is for elected chapter officers and chapter executives from
all chapters and is a great opportunity to
hear from our national leaders about their
priorities and receive feedback from the
individual chapters.
Of everything covered, there were five
overriding issues that dominated the conversation: legislative agenda, worker shortages, diversity and inclusion, engaging the

next generation of leaders and storm/
flood impacts on construction. What follows is a brief recap on each major discussion point. Rest assured that your AGC
Houston chapter leadership is well aware
of these problems and it is part of our Board
of Driectors' agenda.
1. Legislative Agenda
The top five priorities are comprehensive tax reform, infrastructure development, environmental permitting
reform, workforce and prior approval

The 2017 National Chapter Leadership Conference took place September 24-26 at
the Willard InterContinental Washington hotel. Designed for chapter presidents,
vice presidents and chapter executives, the meeting allows AGC's national leaders
to learn about impeding issues and network with each other.
