Construction Leadership Council (CLC)

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.

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.

President’s Message

This is an exciting time in Greater Milwaukee – economic indicators have improved over last year, setting a course of continued optimism for the construction industry.  Current headwinds include workforce shortages, supply chain challenges, and uncertainty with Covid-19.  However, our unwavering dedication to the safety of our workforce and our commitments to our customers-only heightened by the pandemic and essential nature of our business – continue to reach new levels, supported by passionate professionals and industry-leading tools.

Workforce Development
the Great Resignation, flexible work schedules, and the war on talent have challenged our industry.  Over the past decade, we have worked tirelessly with AGC members and advocates to shine a brighter light on workforce development, outreach, and retention.  Via hands-on partnerships with WRTP | BIG STEP; Employ Milwaukee, Building Advantage, local high schools, and colleges in our region, our members excel at attracting the next generation of builders, designers, and engineers to our industry.  It is our duty to develop supportive and guided pathways that create a diverse and inclusive pool of talent.  This remains a devout commitment for 2022.

Public Policy
The AGC-GM carries the important responsibility of serving as the construction industry’s voice – even more critical within today’s changing public and political landscape.  Over the past year, we continued to work locally and nationally to address covid public policies as well as the persistent supply chain concerns plaguing our marketplace.  We will continue to serve as steadfast advocates for our members, pursing actions that advance our industry, increase efficiencies, eliminate waste, and build meaningful careers.

Collective Bargaining
In partnership with the Allied Construction Employers Association (ACEA), we will be bargaining with Laborers, Cement Masons, Bricklayers, and Iron Workers to bring a common sense solution for the construction industry in the local market.  Through it all, we will focus on the AGC-GM’s tenets of skill, integrity, and responsibility.

Industry Relations
Beyond bargaining, we will continue to work with AGC-WI, ACEA, and other industry associations to ensure a high level of services to our members.  These partnerships will allow us to better promote the industry with a unified voice, and best serve the unique needs of our members efficiently and effectively.

I am honored to serve our members as your 2022 AGC-GM present.  I look forward to the coming year supporting AGC’s mission and together finding new ways to advance our industry.

Sincerely,

Scott Heberlein
Mortenson Construction
2022 AGC-GM President
