Who Are YCF Members?

YCF members are the leaders of their generation and committed to personal and professional development through community service, industry networking, and education. YCF Membership is open to AGC member company employees from all membership categories: general contractors, specialty contractors, service providers, architects and engineers.  Young Constructors are defined as early to mid-level professionals who have worked in the construction industry less than 10 years.

 

What Ways Are There To Be Involved?

Steering Committee
YCF is led by a Steering Committee working in tandem with the AGC staff to develop programs and events for the group.  They also serve as YCF spokespersons with member companies, the industry and community.

Company Champions
Every member company is encouraged to appoint a YCF Champion.  Champions serve as the liaison between YCF, your company management and company YCF members, making sure that the company and employees are receiving all the YCF communications and benefits of membership.

Committees
The Steering Committee members Chair different committees as required to manage the current calendar of events and programs.  These committees are staffed by the YCF membership.  They include: Community Outreach, Education & Training, YCF Development, and the Mentoring & Student Activities Committee.
