COVID-19 was a dominate factor in the workplace in 2020 and continues to be this year, as the AGC of Washington on Friday went virtual with its annual meeting and gave it a new name: annual celebration.
If this year’s lineup of AGC officers and board members looks familiar, you’re right, it’s basically the same group as 2020. The AGC decided to keep the group in place due to the pandemic, following the lead of other AGC chapters, in “hopes of 2021 returning to a more normal leadership opportunity for the volunteer leaders.”
Friday’s online event was led by AGC of America CEO Steve Sandherr and AGC of Washington President Curt Gimmestad, who covered where the industry is at and where it’s going in the next year, nationally and locally.
There also were presentations from representatives of the new Seattle Kraken hockey team on their philanthropy and Climate Pledge Arena’s environmentally friendly construction. The lineup included Everett Fitzhugh, who is the team’s play-by-play announcer and the first African-American NHL broadcaster.
The AGC also celebrated the accomplishments of its DBE members, with Patrick Hughes of Hughes Group making a presentation.
