The 2023 Annual Convention in Washington, D.C., featured a heavyweight lineup of featured speakers and plenty of cutting-edge firm management education.
Nearly 900 attendees received valuable political insights from U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and 2024 Presidential Candidate Chris Christie.
They also heard industry and market perspectives from experts such as World Economic Forum President Børge Brende, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Chief of Engineering and Construction Pete Perez, and former CNBC Chief Economist Marci Rossell.
This issue of Engineering Inc. presents complete Convention highlights, and an introduction to members of the 2023-2024 Executive Committee, featuring new ACEC Chair Jay Wolverton, as they provide perspectives on industry challenges, markets, and Council services.
Applause to all 179 project teams celebrated during the 2023 Engineering Excellence Awards Gala, attended by 662 members and guests. It was the second highest Gala turnout to the nearly 700 at the 2019 pre-COVID Gala.
