The Executive Director works all year on government relations, public affairs issues, monitoring and advocating industry and business legislation and regulations so you don’t have to. With the help and guidance of Nebraska Building Chapter members who serve on the Legislative Committee, the Nebraska Building Chapter develops positions on issues that impact your company’s future.
  • Additionally, our industry’s national interests are represented by AGC of America.

  • PAC: The Nebraska Building Chapter established the Nebraska Construction Industry PAC to financially support state legislative candidates who are supportive of the construction industry and our legislative agenda. Partial proceeds from the annual spring golf outing are added annually to the PAC fund. Additional donations are encouraged from members, but are voluntary.
