CALL FOR ENTRIES - Best Buildings deadline 12/11/12

Dear Construction Professional:

AGC New Mexico invites you to participate in the 24th annual Best Buildings Contest!  The celebration date is March 9, 2013 at Sandia Resort & Casino.  Don’t miss the opportunity to be honored at this popular event which celebrates the best in commercial construction.  Enclosed please find an entry form for 2013.  The deadline is December 11th.

AGC - NM's prestigious Best Buildings contest is one of New Mexico’s highly respected construction industry recognition events.  Unlike most building award contests, the Best Buildings nominees are judged on the complexity of the construction process and challenges including budget, site constraints, schedule, and project delivery method.  We know that AGC Members are constructing the Best Buildings in our state, and this event provides an opportunity to celebrate that excellence. 

This premier awards celebration is also an opportunity for owners, contractors, architects and community leaders to meet socially and celebrate their collective contributions to the built environment.  With over 400 in attendance last year, Best Buildings is also the perfect event to increase your business development opportunities by inviting prospective clients as guests.  Consider using this event as a way to reward your project teams for a job well done.

Your support – whether submitting an entry, purchasing a table or through sponsorship – will benefit the New Mexico Building Education Congress(NMBEC). As the education foundation of AGC New Mexico, NMBEC supports important workforce development endeavors including ACE Leadership High School.  Your charitable contribution is tax-deductible* and will enable AGC to continue to fund the workforce development priorities of our valued AGC Members like you.

With the upcoming deadline for award entries on December 11, 2012, the AGC Award Entry Orientation Webinar is recorded here.  The Award Entry Orientation Webinar provides a helpful review of the contest rules and criteria, as well as tips on submitting a strong entry.
