The continuing growth of Houston’s commercial construction industry signals a need for the development of trained, informed and responsible leadership to sustain our organization’s future. Developing young leaders will be a key piece of the future success and growth of the construction industry in Houston.
Developed by construction industry young leaders for young leaders.
Unlike the typical leadership development program, Leadership AGC will focus on the experience. A limited group of 20 participants will develop a civic and professional network and emerge with an increased knowledge of our industry’s diversities. In addition to enhancing their professional and civic networks, program participants will also learn what they can do to actively participate and to ultimately become an influencer in the affairs of the industry and the community.
The Leadership AGC experience consists of educational sessions and experiential learning.
Beginning in January and ending in December, each session focuses on an integral aspect of the commercial construction industry specific to Houston and the surrounding region.
Past programs have included sessions pertaining to the following:
- Introduction to Leadership and AGC Houston

- Community Service and Charitable Giving
- Texas Medical Center/Thermal Energy Corporation or TECO
- Port of Houston
- AGC Texas Building Branch and Legislative Issues Program
