Congressman Don Bacon met with AGC Nebraska Chapter Executive Director, Katie Wilson, AGC Nebraska Building Chapter Executive Director, Sheila O'Connor, and AGC Nebraska Government Affairs Chair, Tyler Chicoine for lunch on Tuesday.
They discussed workforce issues in the industry, immigration, and support for making it easier for workers to come to the country to work. We also thanked him for his support of the Bi-Partisan Infrastructure Bill.

That's a wrap!
Our 2021 Construction Industry Day / BBQ was a huge success. Throughout the day, we saw about 130 members representing over 40 member companies, as well as over 40 government employees.
We started our day with a Member Meeting that included industry reports from AGC of America CEO, Steve Sandherr, and AGC Nebraska Members, Tom Crockett, Bill Mueller, and Steve Samuelson. Attendance was better than expected at the meeting and we appreciate those who took time out of their morning to hear our latest news.
The Member Meeting was followed by an Industry Lunch. The Nebraska Department of Transportation and other government employees joined us for a great meal provided by the Embassy Suites. During lunch, awards were distributed to deserving people within our industry.
Perpetual Pavement Award - NDOT for work on Highway 6
NDOT Signature Award - Jarrod Scott
Lyle Leader - PM Award - Toby Thomsen
Social Media Award - Jarred Horsky
Our Joint Committee Meetings took up the afternoon leading up to the Cocktail Hour and BBQ portion of our event. Typically, we would have been outside on the Back Dock but the rain had other plans. Moving the live music and food inside was a simple task for the wonderful staff at the Embassy Suites. Lots of food, lots of beverages, lots of laughs, lots of fun. We are so glad that we were able to meet up in person for this event and hope to see you all again soon.
Thank you again to all of our sponsors!
