Take the opportunity to step outside, analyze the direction your organization is heading, listen and compare that with other construction professionals and take that perspective back to your organization. The Annual Convention will provide you with the tools and access to step back and get a well-rounded view of your company in comparison to others and the industry as a whole. If you're tasked with delivering the best the construction industry has to offer, you need to join us at AGC's Annual Convention.
