The Art of Advocacy: A United Voice! Empowering You to Make a Difference
During this economic downturn, extreme unemployment, and a volatile governmental climate, we recognize the importance of educated communication, active participation, and collaborative partnerships. With these tools we can avoid a paralyzing environment where industries are faced with regulatory or legislative threats that undermine stability. How do we adapt to compete? How do we adapt to survive? How do we communicate our message effectively? With the art of advocacy using the 7 Actions of Highly Effective Advocates—and a united voice—AGC members can and do make a difference!
This program raises awareness of successful advocacy strategies that enable you to influence policy makers to do no further harm and to garner support for projects beneficial to your organization, industry, and your profession. You will leave with the tools needed to advocate and communicate your key messages.

What Leaders Need to Know Now
David Rabiner, CSP
Things change and industries evolve, and so does leadership. What your business and your employees need from you is significantly different than it used to be. It is important to understand that many changes are not temporary; they are resulting in a new way of doing business that is, for all practical purposes, permanent. In this keynote address, David Rabiner lays out the important leadership qualities that peak-performing construction executives and managers need to have to continue to be successful over the long term. In addition, David will help you see the obstacles that keep today’s managers from leading at high levels. You’ll leave with the foundation necessary for a personal leadership plan that will help you and your business ride the waves of change.
