Mark down June 24 to 27, 2009 in your calendars and be sure to attend the ACEC National Summit, taking place at the beautiful Fairmont Chateau Whistler in the 2010 Olympic host city of Whistler, B. C.!
In the face of ever-changing domestic and global economic uncertainties, the theme for the 2009 ACEC Summit is “Facing our Challenges in Challenging Times.” Business sessions will be designed to focus on the various challenges facing the consulting engineering industry, including those identified at the 2008 FIDIC conference in Quebec City –human resource challenges, strengthening one’s business, market trends, and social responsibility. Back by popular demand will be the Owner’s Roundtable, the CEO and Principals’ roundtables, the cross-country round-up, the ACEC Annual General Meeting, and the PSMJ Pre-Event bootcamp.
But of course, ACEC wants you to have fun! The ever-popular Chairman’s Dinner, local flavour night, the ACEC Golf Classic, and the range of optional tours and activities in the Whistler area should serve to entertain and relax all delegates.
ACEC is also proud to announce that new for 2009 is the introduction of a parallel Young Professionals (YP) Program. This program, intended for the under 35 professional, drew inspiration from the energy and commitment of Young Professionals attending the 2008 Quebec City FIDIC conference. Developed with existing provincial Young Professional clubs, the program will allow YPs to discuss issues unique to them, and to network among both their peers and among their more senior counterparts. A planned tour of the Whistler Olympic venues should also provide an excellent educational opportunity. Conference fees for YPs will be discounted from regular delegate fees.
More information, including registration information, should be made available in late March. Watch future editions of Source and the ACEC website, www.acec.ca,for more information –ACEC looks forward to welcoming you to Whistler from June 24 to 27!
