The Associated General Contractors of North Dakota was founded in 1950 as a branch of the National AGC. The National and State Associations act as a representative voice for members of the AGC on such issues as rules, regulations, legislation, labor relations, bidding procedures, etc. The AGC, through the participation of members, is able to deal with complex issues facing contractors in what is one of the most highly regulated industries in the country.
Through the use of committees covering all aspects of industry concerns, members are kept up to date on changes that will affect their businesses and are able to react quickly in a positive manner. Through AGC committees it is also possible for the Association to meet with groups who will contract our services to offer input on regulatory and legal issues of the project. Committee work can offer members who wish to get involved an opportunity to have a very positive impact on the industry.
Membership in the Associated General Contractors of North Dakota gives each member a unique capability to react quickly to an ever changing and more complicated business environment.
Firms join the AGC because they have a common concern about the future of the construction industry. AGC members make a commitment each year, as they renew their membership, to work together, on the state and federal levels, to fight regulatory barriers that restrict their ability to conduct business.
Regulatory, Environmental, and Political groups are cooperating in more areas than ever before to write regulations and policies that are increasingly more difficult for the Construction Industry to work with. Recently OSHA and the EPA have joined forces to work together on a new ergonomics standard that will most likely have an impact on the construction industry.
Only a strong association that keeps your interests as the top priority can fight those battles. AGC of America is ranked in the top 50 special interest groups in 1998 by Fortune Magazine, AGC of America came in 47th. To be in the top 50 special interest groups among the thousands in Washington D. C. is quite an accomplishment.
