Message from the President/CEO

Honoring Steve Dishman

AGC Houston is deeply saddened for the loss of one of our industry's greatest leaders. Past AGC Houston Board Chair and AGC of America Life Governor, Steve, was a tremendous asset to the Houston Construction Industry. He was a great friend and mentor to all, and will truly be missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Dishman and Brookstone families during this sad time.
