You deserve a voice in matters relating to the construction industry in Virginia. The goal of AGCVA PAC is to ensure AGCVA and its member businesses have a voice in the work of Virginia's General Assembly. It is an unprecedented time in the history of the Commonwealth. A wave of new legislators and the change in political power in Richmond necessitates the use of more resources to build relationships to ensure the construction industry maintains a seat at the table.  To be successful the PAC needs widespread support from members. Therefore, AGCVA urges each member business to give at least $250 per year to the AGCVA PAC.
