After a long hiatus, the AGC Specialty Contractors Council hosted the first in a ten-part series of Success EDU Sessions on Wednesday, September 27 at the AGC Center in Wilsonville. Council chair Bryna Gibson (Gibson Door and Millwork) recruited an elite panel of top local general contractors to present:
- David Andersen, CEO, Andersen Construction Company (Portland, Ore.)
- Steve Malany, President, P & C Construction Company (Portland, Ore.)
- Larry Gescher, President, HP Civil, Inc. (Stayton, Ore.)
Attendees had the opportunity to voice specific needs and issues that specialty contractors face in their relationships with general contractors, and effective communication strategies to address these needs were discussed in a roundtable format with each individual panelist.
The next Success EDU session, “The Bid or Not to Bid: So Many Things to Consider” will be held on Tuesday, October 31 at the AGC Center. The Specialty Contractors Council is open to all AGC specialty contractor members; to get involved, contact Ali Gadbaugh, 503-685-8308.
