Tom Foss, CEO, Griffith Company, Los Angeles, CA
AGC is a vital part of our business and our business model. I make sure that our newest and youngest employees get exposure to AGC as soon as possible, whether it is by sending them to STP courses or having them attend an annual meeting. I want to put them in the room with the people that they need to know, that they can learn from.
We can work with our local chapter on issues that affect the state of California, but when it comes to the bigger issues, AGC of America is there. AGC and the staff have these vital relationships with agencies like the EPA, OSHA and the Department of Labor. They’re in the room when big decisions are made.
