The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.

2016 Awards Program Deadline Approaching!

The Oct. 30th deadline to apply for an Alliant Build America Award and/or AGC in the Community Award is quickly approaching, but it’s not too late!

Alliant Build America Awards
The Alliant Build America Awards honor AGC members who build the nation's most impressive construction projects ranging across the building, highway and transportation, utility infrastructure, and federal and heavy divisions. You know your members have done some great work this year; encourage them to apply online for some much-deserved recognition for their outstanding projects. As an added bonus, all entry fees are donated to the AGC Education and Research Foundation’s Alliant Build America Scholarship Fund and matched by Alliant to double the impact for young constructors across the country. 
Who Should Apply: AGC Members

AGC in the Community Awards
The AGC in the Community Awards program showcases the community service projects of AGC’s members and chapters. These awards recognize community service projects that epitomize the essence of charitable giving, through actual hands-on service and donations to charitable organizations. These charitable efforts reflect positively on the construction industry and the professionals that construct our nation’s buildings, monuments, highways and water infrastructure. Most importantly, however, they are helping people in need. If you know of some good works done in your community by your members, or if you've done a great project (yes, you can apply for this one too!), there's still time to submit an application. 
Who Should Apply: AGC Members, AGC Chapters
