Contractors Environmental Conference
Be Competitive, Compliant, and Cost-Effective in Today’s Environment
Learn how at the 2012 AGC Contractors Environmental Conference.

The 2012 AGC Contractors Environmental Conference, June 7-8, 2012, in Arlington, Virginia, is your chance to network with your peers and learn from more than 30 speakers the latest environmental strategies that are saving contractors money, improving operations and taking firms to the next level.  To celebrate Earth Day, AGC is offering attendees 10 percent off the registration cost all week long (ending May 2). Simply enter coupon code EARTH10 at registration.

AGC’s conference is a one-of-a-kind opportunity because it was developed by contractors for contractors.  The environmental compliance and green construction topics on the agenda were selected by contractor members of the AGC Environmental Forum Steering Committee, many of whom will provide case studies to supplement the educational sessions.  The conference schedule is jammed packed with technology demonstrations, plenary sessions of importance to all AGC divisions, and breakout sessions designed to provide information specific to individual construction markets.  Plus, we have organized a separate afternoon workshop on June 8 (co-located with the conference) to further address environmental issues specific to federal building contractors.

Attendees will walk away with the tools, tips and need-to-know information to help their construction companies be competitive, compliant and cost effective…guaranteed!  Secure your spot today and register online.

Competitive.  Find out how your company measures up and how to set yourself apart from competitors. Keep abreast of market trends such as 2012 changes to green standards and codes and new green infrastructure technologies for stormwater management. Take a look at future challenges and opportunities for the construction industry and hear how you can make a difference—in your community and nationwide.

Compliant.  Protect your company from hefty fines, project delays and loss of good reputation. Hear from U.S. EPA regulators and leading experts about the legal and other environmental requirements impacting your jobsites. Learn how to manage and document stormwater compliance, reduce the occurrence of costly spills, and handle hidden hazards in buildings. Find out what tools contractors in the field have to manage risk and set priorities.

Cost Effective.  Are you wearing multiple hats at your company? Explore the nexus between environment and safety concerns. Discover how sustainable management of company processes, including simple changes to fleet operations and maintenance and waste management, can lead to cost savings and profits.
