The AGC of Iowa Hall of Fame was conceived as the association's highest form of individual member recognition. The honorees are selected by the AGC of Iowa Executive Committee and nominations are based on each individual's lifetime achievements in this industry, as well as lifetime contributions to the association on both the state and national levels.
