AGC of NH Message on COVID-19
All Events Postponed Through April

Associated General Contractors of NH takes the health and safety of our members seriously and has been monitoring the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. As such, we are postponing all our public and committee events scheduled for March and April.
This includes:
  • Construction Overview Seminar event with DOT (postponed, date TBA)
  • OSHA/MSHA Safety Luncheon
  • "Train the Trainer" Flagger Training Course
  • Construction Contracts Luncheon
  • All in-person committee meetings, including Board of Directors, Safety, Highway Spec, and Building committees
We are currently working on setting up conference calls or live-stream whenever possible, and we will stay in touch with the membership as we work out the details. In the meantime, we will continue to monitor guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and our national organization, AGC of America. While we did not make this decision lightly, we feel it’s the most responsible way to reduce the threat of spreading COVID-19 to our members, our communities, and our industry.
Below are some resources you might find useful as you respond to the COVID-19 virus in your own enterprise:
