Registration Now Open for Virtual ACEC Annual Convention, April 26-28

The 2021 ACEC Annual Convention and Legislative Summit will be virtual this year. Taking place over three days—April 26-28—the online event will feature six general sessions, 18 educational sessions, the annual legislative briefing, and numerous opportunities for networking with fellow attendees and vendors.

At the opening general session, ACEC President and CEO Linda Bauer Darr will sit down for a "fireside chat" with FOX News' Chris Wallace. Few journalists have as much experience in national politics as Wallace, who has moderated presidential debates and interviewed a wide range of world figures, from Barack Obama to Vladimir Putin. They'll talk about the 2020 elections and the aftermath and look ahead to what to expect from President Biden and the deeply divided Congress. 

On April 27, Jessica Matthews, the founder and CEO of Uncharted Power, will share her inspiring story of how her award-winning energy and data infrastructure technology company uses its patented suite of Smart City solutions to provide low-cost power to communities in need around the world. 

And on April 28, the ACEC Research Institute will share its findings from three ground-breaking studies into the impact of the engineering industry on the U.S. economy. 

As in past Conventions, a panel of members of Congress will share their thoughts on our industry's key legislative issues, and a CEO panel will discuss business issues.

There will be CEO roundtables as well as practice-focused roundtables.

As at the virtual Fall Conference, registered attendees will have the opportunity to earn all of the 18 PDHs available at the Convention through access to on-demand viewiing after the event concludes.

Attendees will also be able to connect with other Convention participants through the virtual platform, engage in one-on-one or group networking, and visit the virtual exhibit hall, where you can download content, view product demos, and video chat with dozens of vendor attendees.  

The centerpiece of the Annual Convention is always the legislative program. Congress is taking up many key industry issues this year, so we need to make our voices heard. Once again, the ACEC advocacy team will set the table for our legislative agenda during the Convention, but unlike in other years, the lobbying campaign will extend virtually throughout the Spring and Summer months as Congress begins work on its infrastructure agenda. 

Early-bird registration is only $349 for members through March 26. And member firms can get a group discount—buy four registrations and get the fifth free.
