Welcome to AGC's Future Leadership Forum

Construction in Washington State has flourished over the years with the help of strong leadership within the industry and the AGC of Washington. To ensure an equally successful future, it is important for the next group of leaders to develop and prepare themselves for the future challenges of the industry. AGC of Washington recognized the need for a forum that targets our young professionals and provides an avenue to their involvement with the AGC. In 2007, the AGC Future Leadership Forum (FLF) was created as that avenue.

FLF activities are open to all early and mid-career construction industry professionals employed by an AGC member firm or enrolled as a Young Constructor member of the AGC of Washington. To be placed on the mailing list to receive info on future activities, send an email to Jerry VanderWood.

Purpose and Mission

FLF is a program to develop the professional and people skills of the up and coming leaders of Washington's construction industry. The FLF is focused on providing events centered on education, professional development and networking to enhance participants' knowledge of the local marketplace, the construction industry, the AGC, and their own potential as leaders.


  • To be an open forum to exchange ideas.
  • To be an entry vehicle into AGC to promote new member involvement.
  • To foster a strong network among peers.
