"The Voice of the Kentucky Construction Industry"

AGC of Kentucky Committees

AGC of Kentucky realizes the importance of member participation and guidance for the success of the association. We provide avenues for members to become actively involved to ensure that the organization meets the needs of its entire membership.
 

Financial Oversight Committee

Oversee the financial decision making of the association; make recommendations to AGC of Kentucky Board of Directors concerning the financial health of the association; develop financial policy and procedures with board approval.

Legislative Committee

Examine all regulations and statutes currently in place and all proposed legislation for the upcoming sessions of the General Assembly. Determine appropriate actions to be pursued by AGC staff and membership in safeguarding the industry against unfair practices, legislation and regulations.

Political Action Committee (PAC) 

Composed of general contractor and subcontractor members, the PAC Committee is a geographically diverse decision-making body charged with raising funds, evaluating candidates and making PAC disburse-ments to those seeking public office.

AGC of Kentucky’s Political Action Committee (PAC) does more than just help elect pro-construction candi-dates; it earns AGC respect in Frankfort. An association with a strong PAC demonstrates that it has a strong grassroots network, effective leadership and a committed membership. In short, people who can positively influ-ence public policy.

Opioid Reduction Committee

Recognizing the devastating effects the opioid crisis has on the men and women of our commonwealth, our industry and our future, the AGC of Kentucky Opioid Reduction Committee was formed to leverage our stand-ing in the industry to reduce opioid use disorder. This committee will formulate and execute a strategy aimed at educating our member firms and their employees about effective pain management alternatives, encouraging the targeted diversion of unused opioids and promoting evidence-based opioid prescribing protocols.
 
Construction Leadership Council

Provide an opportunity for young industry professionals affiliated with the AGC of Kentucky to (1) develop and enhance their leadership skills, (2) foster strong networks between members/participants, (3) learn more about an increased involvement in the AGC, (4) stay current on industry trends and best practices, (5) make an impact in the community, (6) foster a positive image of the con-struction industry to society’s institutions, and (7) partici-pate in an open forum for the exchange of ideas.

The program’s focus is on maximizing the leadership potential of young industry professionals to benefit them personally as well as their sponsor company, the AGC of Kentucky and the construction industry.
