Engaging In The Future: Cultivating And Growing The Next Generation Of Leaders

The Leadership AGC program is designed to provide a forum for, and increase the awareness of, potential AGC leaders by giving them an intensive experience that encompasses a broad scope of community and industry concerns.

Launched in 2014, Leadership AGC’s core mission is to help young leaders develop a civic and professional network and emerge with an increased knowledge of the commercial construction industry’s diversities.

The eight-month leadership training program consists of eight educational sessions with each one focusing on an integral aspect of the commercial construction industry specific to Houston and the surrounding region. The experience provides the participants with meaningful opportunities to learn and grow, with a focus on learning new skills, gathering knowledge, and growing individually as a person and collectively as teams and organizations.

This year, 14 individuals were selected to take part in the program, based on a variety of criteria which includes their involvement in an industry organization outside of his or her company; their position within their organization and skillset and ambition levels; and their commitment to participate in the Leadership AGC program.

With an eye to the future and a desire to connect with peers and learn from industry leaders, the participants hope to hone numerous skills and gain a greater understanding of the leaders who helped to shape AGC, the commercial construction industry and the city.

The Leadership AGC Class of 2019 participants will be celebrating their achievements in April 2019 when they officially graduate from the program.
