The Associated General Contractors of Connecticut in 2020

Wethersfield, CT – The AGC of Connecticut will kick off 2020 with its biannual Build CT Awards Program in combination with its 73rd Annual Meeting at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville on Feb. 15. At the event, AGC/CT will honor its members’ projects that have been built in Connecticut in the last two years, and celebrate the service of its chapter leaders, including officers and board of directors.

The 2020 AGC of Connecticut leadership team will be: John Hawley, Gilbane Building Co., as president; Michael McPhee, McPhee Electric, as vice president; Aaron Mednick, O&G Industries, as second vice president; and Joe Natarelli, Marcum, LLP, as treasurer.

AGC/CT’s summer event features its Annual Golf Tournament on July 20, 2020 at Tumble Brook Country Club in Bloomfield. Last year’s golf tournament saw record attendance and they look forward to another large number of AGC golfers on the links this summer as well. Part of the proceeds of the event go to the AGC of Connecticut Foundation which supports construction workforce development in Connecticut.

In the fall, AGC/CT will hold its 16th annual Industry Recognition Awards Dinner at the Aqua Turf on Oct. 15. Always fun and rewarding, the event recognizes the achievements of individual leaders in Connecticut’s commercial construction industry in 10 categories: public owner, private owner, designer, general contractor/construction manager, subcontractor, supplier/service provider, project manager, supervisor, educator, and safety professional. The evening also includes presentations to AGC/CT’s annual scholarship recipients and National AGC Safety Awards.

Interwoven into the organization’s schedule are the meetings and events of the Young Contractor’s Forum. Every other month, the YCF, which services those young professionals within the industry under the age of 40, hosts project tours, membership meetings, sporting events, and other gatherings where its members can share ideas, meet new people, and learn from each other about the construction industry.
