Construction Leadership Program

What is the Construction Leadership Program?

The AGC of TN, Middle TN Branch Construction Leadership Program was designed by local contractor executives to provide a course that would expose up-and-coming leaders in a company to the many facets of running a construction company. This program is helpful to anyone who is in construction: project managers, estimators, lawyers, accountants, sales reps, etc . If you are involved in construction in any capacity, this program is for you! Courses range from conflict management to bonding and construction law.
