This forum carries 10 PDHs (Professional Development Hours).

Through ACEC's Finance Forum and its accompanying online community, professionals are connected to a network of their peers in an informal, roundtable setting. Professionals share best practices, discuss problems and solutions, gain valuable insights into industry trends, and network with each other.

The Finance Forum holds one and a half day long workshops, structured for networking with peers, in an interactive roundtable format. Facilitators develop a basic agenda with input from participants and discuss emerging trends and problem solving in the workplace.

ACEC National members who participate in the Finance Forum will receive access to its online community and continue receiving valuable insight and information through member interaction.
