EKU Construction Management students and faculty attended 2016 Associated General Contractors of Kentucky (AGCKY) annual meeting at The Brown Hotel in Louisville, Ky., on November 11, 2016.

Established in 1919, the AGC of Kentucky is the only full-service commercial construction association representing a qualified membership of more than 700 prime contractors and industry associates. At the Annual Meeting, students and faculty had the opportunity to hear first-hand from construction industry leaders. Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet Chief of Staff Andy Hightower updated participants on efforts being made to meet the needs of the commercial construction industry and better position Kentucky as a more attractive place for business.

EKU Construction Management is especially grateful for the ongoing support and partnerships that made attending this meeting possible. A special thanks to Richard Vincent, Executive Vice President, Associated General Contractors of Kentucky (AGCKY), who provided this opportunity for EKU students and faculty.

The AGC of Kentucky is headquartered in Frankfort and is affiliated with the Associated General Contractors of America, the largest and oldest national construction trade association, founded in 1918. AGC of America represents more than 32,000 firms, including 8,000 of America’s leading general contractors and 12,000 specialty-contracting firms.
