Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed December 11, 2018 “Associated General Contractors of Minnesota Day.” Full text of the proclamation:
Whereas: The Associated General Contractors of Minnesota (AGC of Minnesota), established in 1918, celebrates its centennial anniversary as a membership organization, promoting Minnesota's building and highway construction industry through professional leadership and advocacy; and
Whereas: The AGC of Minnesota became the first established state chapter of AGC of America exactly one hundred years ago in Saint Paul, Minnesota; and
Whereas: The AGC of Minnesota serves over 300 members with an enduring commitment to the ideals of skill, responsibility, and integrity; and
Whereas: Building and highway contractors are dedicated and talented individuals who have literally changed the landscape of companies, communities, and the State of Minnesota, with projects from grain elevators, to stadiums, to roads and bridges, to museums, and to the State Capitol; and
Whereas: The AGC of Minnesota will recognize their membership's legacy, and look ahead to its future on December 11, 2018, at 317 Rice Park - the precise location where, exactly one hundred years ago to the day, six general contractors gathered to sign the charter, and The Associated General Contractors of Minnesota was formed.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, MARK DAYTON, Governor of Minnesota, do hereby proclaim Tuesday, December 11, 2018, as: ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS OF MINNESOTA DAY.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Minnesota to be affixed at the State Capitol this 16th day of November.
