Construction Leadership Council
The Construction Leadership Council of Greater Milwaukee (CLC) is a service of the Associated General Contractors of Greater Milwaukee (AGC-GM) and is geared toward young professionals employed by AGC-GM Member Companies. The CLC is a program that has been put in place to address the needs of young professionals and the industry.
This forum functions as a place for young professionals to network and receive support. At the same time, it aids the industry by highlighting its future leaders, supporters, and voice.
At the national level, the CLC has been active for several years. Over half of AGC’s local chapters have established CLC programs or are in the process of doing so. Many local CLC programs have been flourishing for over 10 years. The AGC-GM has been offering a CLC program since 2003 and has over 100 participants in the Milwaukee area.
In order to better serve the members of the CLC and to continue to develop meaningful programming, the CLC Committee has implemented a fee schedule for participation in CLC events.
