Standing Committees

The Technology & Innovation Committee


We rely on members to share their experience and knowledge in the industry with us so that we create a focused, strategic program.  Our committees provide a platform for guidance and discussion on important issues relative to the industry, the business of construction, and meaningful AGC programming.  Committees typically meet quarterly depending on issues that may need to be addressed, and members must be approved by the Chairman of the Board.  If you are a member in good standing and are interested in volunteering your time to serve on a committee, please let us know!

The Technology and Innovation Committee focuses on new technology, innovation, and diversification within the architecture, engineering and construction community in an effort to bring our industry in line with other markets and keep pace with Chattanooga's cutting edge mindset.
