The AGC and its 200-plus member firms represent nearly half of the Washoe County construction jobs. The Nevada Chapter AGC was formed in 1939 by a group of Nevadans intent on replacing the dangerous gravel roads that connected Northern Nevada with modern pavement. They evolved into the modern AGC, whose goal is to use skill, integrity and responsibility to build a better community. AGC membership has been the first to step up to be that good neighbor. These services include: donating labor and materials to local charity groups; donating dollars for the University of Nevada scholarships since 1963, now more than $500,000; supporting the Academy for Career Education, the ACE Charter High School which provides construction education curriculum for Washoe County students.; providing disaster relief with equipment and manpower during times of flood and fire. The Nevada Chapter AGC has been active in national and regional construction issues including job site safety and worker health care, vocational education and recognizing the best in local building.  For more information, log on to www.nevadaagc.org.
