The Association of General Contractors of Missouri (AGC MO) held their Annual Convention April 3–4, 2008, at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel in Branson, Missouri. There was a full agenda including: U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, 2009 Missouri House Speaker-Elect Ron Richard, Col. Setiiff of the Army Corps of Engineers, informative sessions, a golf outing, demonstrations, and a live and silent Political Action Committee (PAC) auction.
The AGC of Missouri Political Action Committee is just one of the tools AGC uses for active involvement in the political process. All the monies raised from this year's PAC auction will be used to make donations on behalf of AGC MO members to legislators and political campaigns that understand the importance of the construction industry and its impact on future highway infrastructure investment and business development. The total amount raised at the 2008 auction was $49,726.
