HR Networking
Save the Date for the Next HR Professionals Networking Forum

  Save the Date for the Next HR Professionals Networking Forum
AGC will hold its next Human Resource Professionals Networking Forum at the Omni Parker House in Boston, MA, on June 9-10, 2005. Like its sold-out and highly evaluated predecessors, this forum will provide HR managers working for AGC contractors and chapters a rare opportunity to network and learn together.

The agenda is still under development, but the format will emphasize roundtable discussions on practical HR issues presently facing construction-industry employers.  Further details and registration information will be published in this newsletter and on the AGC web site when available.

Meanwhile, AGC members can “virtually” network throughout the year via the HR Practices e-Forum, an e-mail discussion group dedicated to HR issues.  For more information, click here. [ return to top ]
