Through educational programs and events that focus on the professional development and leadership skills of the industry’s future leaders, the CLC offers members the opportunity to exchange ideas and to learn from experts about issues facing construction professionals.
Besides socializing at monthly events, CLC members network, exchange ideas about work and the industry, and gain continuing education which includes both professional development and leadership skills.
Individuals who are interested in personal growth, in their company growth and in the construction industry are encouraged to apply.

Applications for AGC's Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA) Are Now Open
2023 Nominations Deadline: December 15, 2022
The purpose of the CSEA is to recognize those construction companies who excel at safety performance. The CSEA closely examines each candidate's commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control. Unlike other safety award programs that limit the criteria to frequency rates, the CSEA selection process is considerably more comprehensive.
Each application will be reviewed for evidence of:
- Company management commitment
- Active employee participation
- Safety training
- Worksite hazard identification and control
- Safety program innovation
The 2023 Construction Safety Excellence Awards competition is now open and available through the AGC of America Website. You are not required to apply through the AGC Houston chapter. Click here to access the application; you will be directed to Formsite, the application platform. Applicants must create an account to view/complete the application.
