The Emerging Contractors Group is a self-led group of young leaders in the construction industry. The ECG will tackle community benefit projects, work with students learning trades, and develop education programs to advance the industry. AGC Maine’s Board of Directors approved the group in 2019. The steering committee was appointed, but future members of the committee will be selected by active members of the EGC. 

Steering Committee

Nick Gaddar, Landry/French Construction, Chair

Jeff Costello, Sargent Corporation, Vice-Chair

Sadie Hammond, Hammond Lumber, Marketing

What kind of activities will the ECG be engaged in 2022? The ECG will tackle a project with Make-a-Wish Foundation, be active with Career and Technical Education Centers, UMaine System, and Community Colleges. They will support the BBQ in Orono in September. Meetings will be held throughout Maine or Zoom, and typically be on the 1st Thursday of the month in the morning.
