Membership Meeting - April 21
Transitioning to Employee Stock Ownership
AGC will host an introduction to Employee Stock-Ownership Plans (ESOPs) led by Tenor Capital Partners. The agenda includes an overview of the benefits and considerations relating to ESOPs, discussion and Q&A with Tenor representatives as well as with AGC members Charter Construction and Exxel Pacific.
Employee stock-ownership plans provide owners and shareholders of privately held businesses highly customizable, tax-advantaged options for exit and succession planning. These structures are used to facilitate transition of the business through the use of employee ownership. With tax rates expected to increase significantly in 2022, ESOPs are more relevant than ever.

Culture of CARE Spring Forum, April 29
This Spring Forum we’re looking forward to diving into the topic of LGBTQ worker inclusion on construction jobsites. Hosting the forum is acclaimed jobsite culture advocate and Construction Superintendent at Hensel Phelps, Kabri Lehrman-Schmidt. Our featured program will be presented by Morgan Mentzer, co-founder and attorney at the Lavender Rights Project, a LGBTQI+ legal services nonprofit, and co-founder of the Reckoning Trade Project, a nonprofit focusing on increasing representation and retention of LGBTQI+ trades workers.
Morgan will give our Forum audience an overview of the Reckoning Trade Project's training resources for LGTBQI+ inclusion, and give us a primer on best practices for employers to create inclusive practices for gender diversity in the workplace. She'll focus on gender diversity in the trades, and explain the differences between sex, gender identity and sexual orientation, pronoun usage, State and Federal discrimination law. Register today...
