A Word From AGCVA Chair, Anthony Smith

Fall has arrived! Here in the mountains of Virginia, the leaves have adorned all of their full glory in oranges, reds, and yellows; the nights are crisp and the morning frost covers the pumpkins waiting to greet the young ghosts and goblins hopeful for a sweet treat. It is a beautiful time of the year. For years and years fall represents an end; crops are harvested, summer tourist venues are closed, and we all prepare in our own way for the cold winter days and nights.

However, it is the time of renewal at the AGCVA! Membership renewal has begun – packets were mailed on October 12, but you can also go directly to the website and renew with just a few clicks of the mouse.

We have accomplished a great deal in the last year as we have advocated on your behalf, helped you to grow your business, and connected you with the people and resources to move your business forward.  Your fellow members are realizing this and renewals have already begun rolling in.

If you haven’t already done so, I urge you to renew without delay. There are many challenges for our industry - and there is tremendous opportunity as well.  Our nearly 100 years of history has proven time and again that we accomplish far more when we face both challenge and opportunity together. Our members have a bright future ahead as our community becomes stronger and we continue to work as the leading partner in Virginia’s construction industry.

On October 20 and 21, the AGCVA District Officers Council and the AGCVA Board of Directors met at AGCVA headquarters in Glen Allen.  We provided our incoming district officers with an orientation for their new leadership roles and approed AGCVA's 2023 budget.  A large amount of the Board of Directors meeting was focused on our business plan for 2023, which is a major part of the heart of our mission, designed to help bring this vision of a bright future to life for you. Let’s take a look at the highlights of goals AGCVA has set for the upcoming year and how we all will benefit as members.




As I mentioned previously, these are just some of the the highlights from our full 2023 business plan. We have set some lofty goals but I am certain we can achieve these (and more) by working together as an industry and association. So don’t hesitate another moment! Complete your renewal today so that you do not miss out on all of the opportunities coming your way as an AGCVA member.
