WASHINGTON - The National Building Museum announced that it will present its 22nd annual Honor Award to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) in recognition of its leadership in shaping, defining, and advancing the construction industry for 90 years. The award recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions in the fields of construction, planning, or architecture. AGC President Douglas E. Barnhart (CEO/chairman, Barnhart Inc., San Diego) and AGC Chief Executive Officer Stephen E. Sandherr will accept the award on behalf of the association during a gala event on June 4, 2008 in the museum’s Great Hall.

Founded in 1918 at the request of President Woodrow Wilson, AGC is the largest and oldest construction trade association in the United States. For the past nine decades, AGC has been an advocate for the construction industry at the local, state, and federal levels, promoting investment, training, and general advancement of the construction profession.

“AGC is the first association the museum has distinguished with its highest honor - a tribute to the extraordinary and positive impact AGC has had and continues to have on the nation,” said Chase Rynd, National Building Museum executive director and president.

AGC represents 33,000 firms, including 7,500 of America’s leading general contractors and 12,500 specialty-contracting firms. More than 13,000 service providers and suppliers are associated with AGC through its nationwide network of chapters.
