2023 AGC of Alaska Annual Conference

either snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night,” might be the unofficial credo of the American postal worker, but it also illustrates the determination of those in the Alaska construction industry. True to form, the record-breaking dump of snow in Anchorage November 8 did not keep Associated General Contractors, or AGC, of Alaska members from attending the November 8 through 11 conference at Hotel Captain Cook.

The conference marked seventy-five years of AGC of Alaska, and—amid presentations from the US Department of Defense, the Alaska Department of Transportation, and Governor Mike Dunleavy’s Infrastructure office—a host of presenters delivered useful business tips such as unexpected places to look for opportunities and solving problems, how to remove risk from retirement decisions, and tips for how to build a mentally fit workforce in Alaska.

Wrapping up the conference was the “Yacht Club” themed AGC Dinner Dance, where attendees donned captain’s hats or turned up dressed as Gilligan from the ‘60s sitcom Gilligan’s Island and rocked out to yacht rock and ‘80s hits by AGC gala favorite, the Chicago-based band Final Say. It was a fitting celebration to mark three-quarters of a century of outstanding work in Alaska.
