January 31, 2018, Portland, Maine-The Associated General Contractors of Maine held their 67th Annual Meeting at Brick South in Portland. The celebration featured the Road to the Blaine House-a gubernatorial debate, vendor show and transition for new Board members. This year three Board members, Bob Chaput, Jim Hanley, and Gene Fadrigon completed their Board service and were recognized by Board President Jon Smith of Great Falls Construction.

Jim Hanley of Pike Industries served on the Board of Directors for more than a decade in various capacities including Transportation Committee Chair, Government Relations Committee Chair and elected Director. “Jim’s service to the industry will be sorely missed. His knowledge of policy and infrastructure heightened the level of discussions for AGC in Augusta and Washington DC,” Smith said.

Bob Chaput of SW Cole served four years as Chapter Treasurer completing a term during the toughest financial challenges of a generation.“Bob’s leadership during the tail end of the great recession demonstrated his ability to help the Chapter adapt to the changing economic conditions and prepare for growth as the market started to recover,” said Smith.

Gene Fadrigon of Gorham Sand and Gravel served for three years as Elected Director and also Vice Chair of the Site Work Committee. “Gene’s experience in public and private sector helped AGC Maine chart the course as we worked on complex regulatory policy decisions. I appreciate the energy he brought to the discussions during Board meetings and with our entire AGC Maine team,” Smith said.

AGC Maine celebrated four additions to the Board all serving three-year terms, Joel Wardwell of Lane Construction, Matt Timberlake of Ted Berry Company, Dave Nazaroff of The Penobscot Company and Sean Ferguson of CCB, Inc. was appointed Treasurer.
