Advocacy

AGC of Alaska strives to provide excellent advocacy for Alaska’s construction industry at all levels of government. Our mission is to inform legislators and community leaders about the importance and impact that our industry has on the state’s overall economy and infrastructure development. Through your involvement, AGC is able to provide a powerful and respected voice in the halls of local, state and federal government.

​Our advocacy is a year-round venture that fights to protect construction’s interests with the local municipality or borough, Alaska’s executive branch, legislative branch, state agencies, state judicial system, the federal government and federal agencies. Our advocacy efforts never stop because we know that your work never stops.  AGC provides multiple ways for you to get involved in our advocacy efforts and to make sure that your voice is heard when it comes to policies that impact construction.
