Young Constructors Forum -YCF

AGC West Tennessee’s Young Constructors Forum has its primary goal set in offering a peer to peer networking opportunity that is generally not available elsewhere to entry level professionals. We function as a forum in which members can network, socialize and exchange ideas on issues facing the 21st century construction professional. YCF generally meets in a relaxed informal setting once a month to forge the relationships that will develop future leaders of construction industry companies and discuss the issues that are important to us. There is no age limit for YCF, however we define young constructor is an entry to mid-level construction professional that has less than 10 years of industry experience.

YCF also aims to attract young people to the construction industry and promote the industry as a whole to college students, technical college students and even high school students. We are getting started with this by establishing an AGC Student Chapter at the University of Memphis. In the fall 2015 semester YCF officers attended a career fair at the U of M engineering complex and found a strong interest from a group of civil engineering students to participate in the student chapter.

A third purpose for YCF is to support AGC as a whole. We intend on reaching out to many young professionals, both AGC members and non-members. We can assist the AGC membership drive by building interest in becoming a member from the ground up in these companies that are not yet members.

If you know of anyone at your company or office that may want to join or if you are interested in helping your company develop its future leaders, remember that the networking opportunities are limited by your own involvement. Our next social event will be Thursday, December 3rd at the Wiseacre brewery at 6:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
