One of the best parts of any conference is the opportunity to network, to meet people with different ideas, and to make friends and community in the industry.

Each morning of the AGC 2019 Leadership Development Conference, Reggie Asare of Skanska USA Building led conference attendees through Stretch and Flex to get attendees’ minds and bodies warmed up for the day.

The conference was opened with remarks from AGC and GBCA officials:

  • Gaines Moorer, National CLC Vice Chair
  • Dirk Elsperman, AGC National President
  • Joseph Clearkin, GBCA Chairman of the Board
  • Reggie Asare, GBCA Construction Leadership Council Chair


Attendees also had the opportunity to mingle during the Welcome Reception at the DoubleTree Center City Philadelphia, and the Official LDC Reception at Lucky Strike, which featured a visit from Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross! After the Official Reception, many attendees continued the party at several Center City watering holes, such as McGillin’s Olde Ale House, the oldest continually operating pub in the city.

Thanks to all of the attendees for coming and making the conference so great!



The 2020 Leadership Development Conference will be held in Chicago, October 13-16, 2020. Hope to see everyone there!
