Testimonial PhotoWe had an issue dealing with a major utility and a damage claim. Working with CAGC's Utility Division Director, Allen Gray, we were able to negotiate a settlement that saved us over $10,000, around half of the original claim. Having access to experts in their field at CAGC is just one of the benefits that make membership well worth our investment in dues.
