NEVADA CHAPTER AGC NEWS RELEASE – An acronym for the AGC motto, “Skill, Integrity and Responsibility,” the SIR Award is given to honor the men, women and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to Nevada, our quality of life and the construction industry. Originating with the Nevada Chapter in 1967, the SIR Award was adopted by AGC chapters nationwide, including the national office in Washington, D.C.
Nominations are open to any Nevada resident who has made a outstanding contribution to our community or Nevada’s construction industry in 2013, or throughout the span of their career. SIR Award recipients are chosen by a special ad hoc committee of AGC past presidents and select board and committee members.
Since the award’s inception, the Nevada Chapter AGC has given out more than 100 SIR Awards to those who embody Skill, Integrity and Responsibility. Last year’s SIR winners were Leo P. Bergin III, Partner, McDonald Carano Wilson ; Sparks Mayor Geno Martini; and Mike Cate, CEO, Silver State Masonry, Inc./President – Construction Development Services, Inc.
To nominate a person, organization or company that has embodied the SIR Award, please contact Ashley Stone at 775-329-6116 before January 7, 2014.
This year’s SIR Award Banquet will be held on February 19 at the Eldorado Hotel and Casino.
The AGC and its 300 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.
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.
