Project Manager Lance Wright of Nabholz’ South Central operations was recently named Chairman of the Future Leaders Division (FLD) of the Arkansas Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The FLD, for AGC members age 39 and younger, helps young construction professionals develop the leadership skills and knowledge they will need to one day lead AGC and the construction industry. During his six years with the organization, Lance has also served as Vice Chair of the FLD committee, chaired subcommittees organizing educational events, and attended the National AGC Fall Work Shop in Oklahoma City.
In his new role as Chairman, Lance will manage the FLD committee and activities that take place throughout the year, including traditional events like Day at the Races, Industry Tours, and the Skeet Shoot. In addition, Lance wants to establish new goals that “focus on education and involvement with the UALR Construction Program.”
“The primary goal is to grow membership in the AGC and help educate others on the importance of the organization,” Lance says. “We will continue the traditional events while putting a new focus on connecting with UALR Construction Students and hosting subcontractor seminars in which subcontractor members of AGC will open their facilities to discuss their operation and key quality points related to their work.”
Lance says he is committed to AGC because “the AGC is the voice of the construction industry in Arkansas. Through an active legislative committee and state agency liaison committees, the Arkansas Chapter vigorously promotes and protects the construction industry’s interests.”
Commenting on how his membership benefits Nabholz, Lance says, “AGC’s involvement with local and national legislation keeps all members updated on important issues that affect our industry. It is good to stay informed on these issues and to get to know the people who play a role in making changes.”
