Behind the Scenes

Supporting Our Industry Partners from the Top

One of our core principles is to give back by supporting the construction industry and investing in training, development, and mentorship. Our financial and in-kind support includes sponsoring and participating in the Engineering and Construction Community (ECC) Association’s Future Leaders program and the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Louisiana’s state convention.

ECC Association Future Leaders

We are proud to sponsor the ECC Association Future Leaders program. In addition, two of our co-workers — Manager of Business Development Lance Arvel and Project Manager Oscar Giron — are members of the 2021 Future Leaders program. The program encourages growth and innovation by connecting emerging professionals with industry leaders and their peers.

“My priority as a leader is to invest time and effort into helping my co-workers be more successful by making connections, offering feedback, and providing the resources they need,” said Oscar. “By being a Future Leader, I am able to observe a variety of leaders and what makes them successful. I plan to bring these insights and skills back to BGCI.”  Find more info. about the conference here.

ABC Louisiana State Convention

The ABC of Louisiana’s annual state convention was held July 28 – 30 in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Lance Arvel was proud to serve on the planning committee. In this role, he helped plan and line up the keynote speakers, breakout sessions, sponsorship opportunities, and daily activities that took place during the conference.

“It was a great opportunity to be part of this year’s committee,” said Lance. “Our chair, Scott Mcknight, ran a tight ship and kept us all on task, which is hard to do with a room full of opinions. ABC Staff Liaison Lindsey Russ did a fantastic job bringing the ideas and plan to life.”
