Advocating for our Members

The COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally changed the way contractors performed their essential work amidst ever-changing local and state orders, mandates, and protocols. To support the industry’s ability to carry out work safely, AGC’s staff, Legislative Affairs Committee, governing board, and lobbyist work diligently with our members to advocate for priority legislation and policies at the state and local level. We work with elected officials to ensure contractors have a voice in the industry’s decisions.

Throughout the pandemic, AGC informed our members of the latest news, regulations, and resources available via AGC’s COVID-resource database on our website and through social media channels and e-Newsletters. We represented the construction industry’s voice at the local, state, and federal levels while advocating for the interests of our organization’s legislative priorities. The pandemic accelerated our efforts in all areas of our mission of advocating, educating, and promoting our members and Alaska’s construction industry. AGC helped shape the parameters of the national infrastructure bill that’s poised to bring millions of dollars in federal funding to our state.

At the local level, we were the first group to expand learning opportunities to our audience in a virtual, more convenient manner to the student. AGC has consistently promoted the message that construction is essential, which has since converted into a state/nationwide workforce development campaign.
