Be Pro Be Proud
Last year AGC Arkansas joined the trucking and manufacturing industries to support the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce's workforce initiative: Be Pro Be Proud.  The goal of the program is to shrink the “skills gap” that exists between Arkansas' growing labor pool and industry and economic development prospects. The program uses a high-tech mobile unit, which travels the state to visit companies, schools and events to showcase skilled trade professions and broaden the awareness of these professions' impact on our state's workforce.
