The construction community faced many challenges in 2022. The industry continued to struggle with chronic workforce shortages, caused in part by difficulties in attracting a more diverse workforce. Workers’ health and safety continues to be at risk from physical and mental threats. Inflation and supply chain problems made it difficult for contractors to keep projects on budget and on schedule. All the while, the business environment in Washington, D.C. remained challenging, with federal officials repeatedly attempting to impose new regulations and restrictions on the industry. Adding to that, the way people learn and engage with their association continued to evolve as busy professionals struggle to make the time to engage in traditional ways.
AGC of America found many ways to help members conquer those challenges, all the while building opportunities for members to succeed, as this Annual Report makes clear. We put in place new and expanded programs to develop a larger and more diverse construction workforce. We launched new campaigns to address mental health, job site safety and better protect workers in highway work zones. Our inflation education efforts helped contractors work with owners to get greater flexibility with their contracts. Our government affairs team helped block the worst of what Washington had to offer. All the while, we launched a new virtual education program and made it easier for members to engage with AGC.
In other words, your national association was all about Conquering Challenges and Building Opportunities in 2022.

I have said it before, and I will say it again: AGC of America has the best staff in the world. And not just in Washington, D.C., but also within our 89 different chapters across the country. There is no greater proof of their capabilities than the contents of this year’s annual report.
2022 was a year full of challenges for us in the construction industry. We had to pay more for materials we hoped to have delivered at some point. We struggled to find people to hire. We kept looking for ways to protect our workers’ safety and health. We had to deal with federal officials who never met a rule or regulation they didn’t like. And we had to find ways to bring people together to move our industry and our association forward.
Yet thanks to our incredible staff, we found ways to conquer those challenges and to build new opportunities for our members. We are finding new and more diverse workers. We are getting a handle on supply chain problems and materials prices. We aren’t just beating back bad ideas in Washington; we are getting D.C. to make new investments in construction. We are better protecting our workers and beginning to appreciate that mental health is as important as physical safety. And we are getting more and more members involved and engaged in our association.
This is happening because our staff keep finding new ways to support our industry. So, as you read this report, be proud of what our association is accomplishing. And be grateful for the team we have working for us in Washington, D.C. and in our 89 chapters across the country.

Thank you to the AGC of America and its members for your continued partnership in driving this industry forward. As I reflect on the past year, I am once again impressed by the incredible innovation, grit, and resilience of this industry. I am continually inspired and humbled not only by all of the groundbreaking projects but also by the folks who continue to do the mission-critical work of building the world around us every day.
Since day one, Procore’s vision has been to improve the lives of everyone in construction, and for the past two decades, we have been laser-focused on building the platform that allows you to do the best work of your lives. But we also know that being a true partner to the industry goes beyond developing great products—it means working together with the AGC of America and many of you to understand, and solve, the industry’s toughest challenges.
Over the past several years at Procore, we have strengthened our alliance with the AGC of America through our Capstone Partnership and membership in several local chapters nation-wide. We are deeply committed to driving the industry forward through our continuing education and workforce development efforts, ongoing support around building a safety culture focused on both mental and physical health, advancing women in construction, and AGC’s Culture of Care which aims to create a more diverse and inclusive industry. And as we work toward greater equity in construction, we are proud to have launched, in partnership with the AGC of America, a scholarship fund to support students studying construction at historically Black colleges and universities, or HBCUs.
Procore is honored to work alongside this incredible organization and many of you as we work toward our mission of connecting everyone in construction on a global platform. Thank you for your ongoing partnership and for all that you do to build our communities. I look forward to seeing what we accomplish together in the year ahead and beyond.
