CAGC Members Pledge $117,500 at Convention to Support New BYC 50/50 Program!
At the recent Carolinas AGC Annual Convention in Aruba, our attending members enjoyed hot, sun-filled Caribbean days, cold island drinks, delicious local Aruban cuisine and a jam-packed, yet very entertaining, agenda. We had much to celebrate in this tropical paradise—the 100th anniversary of CAGC, our prestigious 2019 AGC of America Chapter of the Year award, our Pinnacle Award winners and mostly just celebrating quality time with old friends and familiar faces. Now that we’ve all returned back to our normal routines and the dust has settled a bit, Build Your Career also has a huge reason to celebrate.
During our Convention, we introduced our new 50/50 fundraising program and it piqued an extraordinary amount of interest and generated an overwhelming positive response from our attending member employers. This employer-driven program is a creative fundraising initiative strategically designed to give individual companies a choice on how they would like their BYC contributions to be used, both in their community at a local school and also within the BYC program. Our attending Convention members were so enthusiastic about the potential for the new 50/50 program to directly benefit their companies and address their individual workforce needs in a more expeditious manner that they stepped up to the plate and really knocked one out of the park by pledging $117,500—delivering a real home run for the first BYC fundraiser of 2020!
