Economist: AGC Programs
Crucial to Construction Industry
“I’m glad that you have taken the initiative in Alabama – with Go Build and AGCWorks – to recruit young people to the industry and then to find them jobs and get them trained.”
So said AGC of America Chief Economist Ken Simonson during a speech to the Birmingham Section meeting on May 1. More than 300 members participated in the program in all Alabama AGC offices via the internet.
Simonson reported good news for the economy “and that’s important for construction as a whole.”

Big Group Attends National Convention
The Alabama AGC had a large contingent at the AGC National Convention in Palm Springs, CA in March.
There was a lot of good fun and conversation in the hospitality room where Mike and Kaye Tew and Johnny and Kathy Walton made excellent hosts. And there was a lot of fun to be had as evidenced by Julie Pate’s moment in the spotlight A Star in Born.
Of course, Alabama contractors were honored at the Alliant Build America Awards for their great work in 2012. Caddell Construction Co. won in the International Division for construction of the new U.S. Embassy in Djibouti, Djibouti and B. L. Harbert won a Merit Award in the International Division for the new U.S. Embassy Compound in Monrovia, Liberia.
On a sad note, Alabama AGC CEO Henry T. Hagood, Jr. missed the national convention for the first time in his 44-year career at AGC. Henry was in everyone’s thoughts – from California, to Wisconsin, to Washington D.C., to Mobile, AL.
