Virtual Summit a Success with More than 600 in Attendance!

Don't take our word for it!

“As a relatively new member of CAGC, I continue to be amazed by the staff and planning expertise of CAGC. A virtual conference? Who wants to go to a virtual conference? Well if they had attended today’s conference, as 400 to 600 people did, they would always opt for anything CAGC plans, what an excellent job you and the other staff did. Congratulations is the only way I know how to say it, what a well-planned event, seamless transitions from speaker to speaker and perfectly executed day. Congratulations!” - Robert L. Griffin, Shield Engineering
NCDOT logoOn Friday July 31, 2020 Carolinas AGC held our very popular Summer Summit virtually. While we certainly all wished we were together in person, the line up of speakers did not disappoint!

Among the many great speakers, we were joined by South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, North Carolina Speaker of the House Tim Moore, top SC Economist Joey Von Nessen, top NC Economist Mike Walden, and leaders from both NCDOT and SCDOT! 

SCDOT logoWe look forward to the time when we can all gather together again, but as you can tell, CAGC is dedicated to delivering the best and most valuable content and industry information for our construction community.

“I just wanted to follow up to the virtual summit this past Friday to say I thought y’all did a great job and that I really enjoyed the content. I know it is incredibly hard to take a multi-day conference that is held in person year over year and pivot into a virtual event. Honestly, I was skeptical of being on a webinar for a half day but I thought the balance between speakers kept things moving and engaging and offered great perspectives.
