efforts over the years have made a significant impact on the Metroplex and the
local construction industry. Their training and the safety/environmental programs
have led to better qualified local contractors who are more capable of maintaining
safe, legally compliant job sites. Just as importantly, TEXO's constant involvement
with government officials and agencies at all levels has created new opportunities
for general contractors, improved relations with minority communities, mitigated
the effects of legislation that worked against the industry and helped to standardize
regulations throughout the Metroplex. As a result of the ABC / AGC merger and
alliance in 2008, AGC Dallas is positioned to even greater successes in the future.
impact of TEXO extends beyond Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas. Their innovations -
like being the first AGC chapter to hire a safety expert and an environmentalist
- have been emulated by other chapters, raising the association's level of support
for general contractors around the country. The SafetyNet program, which QUOIN
is helping to pioneer, has the potential to help general contractors and government
agencies all across the United States.
Not surprisingly, the organization
has been recognized for their work. In 2002 QUOIN received three awards from the
National AGC: The Chapter of Year, the Local Chapter Chairman of Year and the
Executive of the Year. A testament to the success of QUOIN's safety program, QUOIN
members have won six AGC National Construction Safety Excellence awards (40% of
the total number given for the entire country) since 2001.
the association business my whole life I understand what associations do,"
said Raleigh Roussell. "There's a real need for an organization like the
AGC Dallas and the ABC / AGC Alliance. The benefits to a lot of what we do are
intangible. But an industry needs a single voice. It needs representation."

Member Bob Moore Construction recognizes that the AGC Dallas's name was changed
to TEXO The Construction Association in 2009. This
followed the merger of the North Texas Chapters of AGC and ABC. While initially
the name TEXO was not widely recognized with other construction and commercial
real estate businesses, it has since become well known and regarded. The merger
of AGC and ABC in Dallas will continue to offer benefits to the industry and has
already been instrumental in key legislative changes that have made a positive
impact for General Contractors as well as Specialty Contractors all over the state
