Through ACEC's Information Technology (IT) Forum and its accompanying listserv, IT professionals are connected to a network of their peers in an informal, roundtable setting. Professionals share best practices, discuss problems and solutions, and gain valuable insights into industry trends.

The IT Forum holds day long workshops structured for networking with peers, in an interactive roundtable format. Facilitators guide participant discussions on emerging trends and problem solving in the workplace.
