Roger Rickard will empower you to get involved and 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!
