Who Attends

People talking at a table
AGC’s annual conference serves and supports everyone involved in surety bonding and/or the larger process of construction risk management. That group includes the senior executives of the construction companies in the AGC family and particularly the in-house lawyers and risk managers for those companies. In addition, it includes the sureties, bond producers, insurance carriers, insurance brokers, lawyers and other professionals on whom such executives continue to depend for advice and assistance.

Pre-Conference Meetings

Pre-Conference meeting
Prior to the conference, AGC typically holds separate meetings for the in-house lawyers and risk managers in the AGC family. While primarily intended for such professionals, these meetings are open to everyone working for the construction companies that form the core of the association’s membership. Their goal is to provide an opportunity for peer-to-peer discussion of the biggest challenges for today’s construction firms.

History and Focus

People in a conference room.
AGC’s annual Conference on Surety Bonding and Construction Risk Management had a quiet beginning as a modest committee meeting. Over the years, it has become a much larger event. It continues, however, to focus on the thought leaders in the field of construction risk management, including the construction, surety, insurance and legal professionals who continue to play such important roles. Its unchanged goal is to provide a meaningful opportunity for these professionals to share their expertise and experience with each other.
