Updates to AGC Membership Discount Program

More Ways to Save with AGC!

AGC’s Membership Discount Program’s provide members access to high-quality services, cutting-edge technology and top-of-the-line products. From discounts on vehicles to office supplies to cloud-based construction management solutions, AGC has partnered with some of the best to give you the most for your money and improve your daily business operations.

We have a couple of updates regarding some of the AGC of America member discount programs:

BFGOODRICH TIRES – We are excited to officially announce AGC’s newest member discount program on BFGoodrich tires. AGC members can save up to $100.00 on a set of four new tires as part of their Tradesmen Support Program – Learn more here.

COMPATICA APP – Some of you may have participated in the Utility Infrastructure Showcase at the Convention last week and heard about our soon to launch partnership with Compatica, a mobile app provider for workplace incident reporting.

AGC members will receive a significant discount on the Compatica App, and details on how to take advantage of the AGC program will be released in the next couple of weeks.
You can learn more about Compatica here.

ATHENIUM ANALYTICS – Reminder about AGC’s new cloud-based weather risk analysis and alert dashboard for contractors. See how Athnium Anallytics can help your company here.

ARCORO – Reminder about the new member discount programs being offered by ARCORO (parent company for BirdDogHR), including the ExakTime time and attendance solution and InfinityHR’s payroll and benefits management solution. Learn more here.

FORD FLEET – We received notification from Ford that they will be ending its current association program for qualified fleet operators effective April 1, 2019.

  • They will apparently still be honoring the discount on fleet purchases for a period of time (no specific time frame was given), but it appears it is being offered up to any qualified fleet operator regardless of affiliation with AGC.
  • We will be removing information on the Ford program from the AGC of America website and Chapter exchange effective immediately.

When it comes to your company’s bottom-line, your membership in AGC pays dividends. These value added discounts will give you the competitive advantage over your competition.

We’ve heard the grim statistics in survey after survey — the labor shortage has 70% of contractors missing deadlines and it simply isn’t letting up. The industry is bogged down in constraints even at the peak of its economic cycle, but fixating on this is discouraging to companies targeting continuous growth and improvement.

Without minimizing present pain points, Dennis Engelbrecht, a senior consultant at The Family Business Institute, part of The Travelers Cos. family, framed his recommendations at the Associated General Contractors of America’s convention this week in a much more positive light by setting out the top 10 reasons contractors achieve success and can continue to do so. These were the characteristics that the institute’s top rung of clients, marked by growth and profitability, had in common, according to the business management consulting firm.

1. Servant leadership

An effective leader likely attained that position because of innate talent and drive, but once at the top, he doesn’t settle in his ways. “There’s always more to learn,” said Engelbrecht, “and as soon as you think you’ve got it all, it probably means your ego is leading more than it should be.”

That drive can also be channeled to move an organization forward in a spirit of service to employees, not self-interest, he suggested and oriented in a way that meets the needs of …Read full article here.
