AGC’s BUILD PAC pools the generous contributions of construction-industry members for maximum impact.

The state’s premier commercial construction political action committee, AGC's BUILD PAC supports state- and local-government candidates and issues affecting the construction industry.

AGC’s BUILD PAC pools the generous contributions of construction-industry members for maximum impact. AGC’s BUILD PAC helps to fund the campaigns of pro-construction candidates for local, legislative and statewide offices, and support ballot measures favorable to the industry and oppose those that are not.

Public officials who understand the importance of the construction industry to the state’s economy rarely just happen along. Individuals willing to serve who are able and willing to advocate our industry viewpoints must be encouraged and supported. This support includes financial assistance in their elections.Your participation is vital!

AGC's BUILD PAC Resources

AGC’s BUILD PAC provides contractors with an opportunity to influence state and local elections from a position of collective strength. Our lobbyists are highly regarded for their advocacy efforts on behalf of the commercial construction industry. They successfully educate policymakers on the effect of proposals on contractors, and strategically influence the development of legislation and regulations. But that’s only half the battle. The other half is electing policymakers who will give the construction industry a fair shake in the first place, and passing ballot measures that support a sound business environment. And that’s where AGC’s BUILD PAC comes in.

A well-funded PAC allows us to support and retain incumbents and elect new candidates to office who will champion critical, construction-related needs. Our opponents on important construction issues are powerful. They spend big money to elect candidates that don’t share our concerns and also fight our efforts to protect the construction industry.
