Celso Gonzalez Jr., President of Celso Gonzalez Construction, Inc., shared his experience as a member of the Rio Grande Valley Chapter of Associated General Contractors (RGV AGC).
“We’ve been a member just a little bit under four years. We were approached approximately 15, 20 years ago to become members. At that time, I didn’t find it very beneficial, and that’s only because I was a little ignorant, and I didn’t know the benefits that AGC actually brought to us,” he smiled.
“Once joining the Associated General Contractors, we started seeing the value in it. Being in there, talking to other general contractors, we find out that we have a lot in common. It’s been an eye-opening experience being in the organization. General contractors and their staff [should] become members of AGC because they get to network, they get to understand the industry, and it brings a lot of benefits to you.”
How does being a member of RGV AGC benefit general contractors?
According to the organization’s website, “RGV AGC provides a full range of services to meet the needs and concerns of its members. Together we are improving the construction industry in the Rio Grande Valley.”
In addition to amazing discounts with national companies like FedEx, Avis, GM, Verizon, Office Depot, and many more, RGV AGC offers a variety of member-focused services that provide enhanced working conditions, such as Education & Training, Safety, Legislative Action & Advocacy, Electronic Plan Rooms, and Networking.
