On August 26, 2015, Tarpan Construction became a member of The Mississippi Valley Branch of the Associated General Contractors of America. We are very excited to be a member of this outstanding organization.
The Mississippi Valley Branch of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) traces its beginnings to March 1925 when a group of levee contractors met in Memphis, Tennessee and formed a levee division within the Memphis Chapter of AGC. The levee division remained actively affiliated with the Memphis Chapter until June 1, 1928 when AGC officially chartered the levee division as the Mississippi Valley Flood Control Branch. The mission of Mississippi Valley AGC is uniquely focused on federal flood control and navigation work on the Mississippi River and its tributaries. It is the only AGC Chapter that shares geographical jurisdiction with the AGC chapters of other states, the ten states bordering the Mississippi River. The key to its long success is the dedication and active involvement of its membership with its Federal Agency Partners - the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. AGC works with Congress and the White House to ensure that laws and regulations enhance (but not limit) your business operations. AGC serves as your company’s eyes and ears in the policy arena alerting you to any activity that may impede your ability to do business, giving you the tools to take action and make a difference. http://www.mvagc.org
