The Emerging Contractors Group is a self-led group of young leaders in the construction industry. The ECG tackles community benefit projects, works with students learning trades, and develops 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

Dan Aceto, Aceto Earthworks, Vice-Chair

Sadie Hammond, Hammond Lumber, Marketing

What kind of activities will the ECG be engaged in? The ECG tackles projects with Make-a-Wish Foundation & the Ronald McDonald House, assists the Maine Construction Academy with engaging the next generation of skilled workers, and collaborating with industry partners in Maine to advance members in connections and professional growth. Meetings will be held via Zoom, and typically be on the 1st Thursday of the month in the morning.
