Construction Leadership Council

Become a Future Leader!

 

 

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) was established to fulfill the need to cultivate the next generation of leaders in the construction industry as well as the association both at the local and national levels.

 

What do you get when you join the CLC? 

Membership in the CLC is a win-win-win situation. GBCA wins by being able to fulfill its mission of assisting and educating its members to the max. CLC member companies are the biggest winners of all. CLC committee membership is free per company, they get to assign as many of their employees as they wish to participate at the low cost CLC events and training. One important key to surviving in today’s economic climate is having a well-educated staff that is confident that the company they work for cares about them. Knowledge is power – strength, ability, and potential.

Service - Education - Networking - Leadership

It is critical that the young professionals of the membership within the GBCA develop into the future leaders of our industry, community and our association. Through education, networking and service each member of the CLC will grow to understand that construction starts with building relationships. Our goal is to develop the future leadership of GBCA that will continue to construct an industry that becomes safer and more productive. 

 

Mission Statement

The CLC is group of young construction professionals (ages 40 and younger) who are committed to maintaining, improving and promoting the construction industry and our association through education, networking and service. The CLC will promote the mission of the GBCA while building the future foundation for our association, industry and leadership.
