ACEC is now accepting registrations for the 2009 ACEC National Summit taking place in Whistler, B. C., from June 24-27. Registration information, along with a preliminary program and accommodation information, can be found on the ACEC website at www.acec.ca.
Under the theme of “Facing Our Challenges in Challenging Times,” the ACEC Summit has something for everyone. Speakers’ panels have been organized to speak directly to some of the key challenges facing engineering firms –human resource challenges; opportunities afforded by domestic and international stimuli packages; future trends and economic conditions; an Owners Roundtable, and the ever-popular cross-country reports and CEO and Principles Roundtables. A pre-event PSMJ Bootcamp is also offered.
New for 2009 is the introduction of a parallel Young Professionals Program. Intended for the under-35 professional, this program will allow YPs from across Canada to network amongst themselves and amongst their more senior peers. The YP business sessions will also allow discussion of top-of-mind issues for the younger demographic –human resource issues and motivations; social and environmental challenges; a tour of the Whistler Olympic venues; and a cross-country forum where issues and developments at a more regional level will be discussed. Registration fees for YPs have been lowered to encourage participation from this key group.
A full social program is also included. The ACEC Golf Classic; a ride up the spectacular Whistler Gondola; a “Taste of Canada” welcome reception; an elaborate spousal program; a yoga class, and numerous optional tours and adventures are featured.
Don’t miss out -join your industry peers and ACEC colleagues in Whistler from June 24-27!
