Welcome to Estimator News, a periodic publication of Consulting Estimators Round Table!

On behalf of CERT, I would like to thank you for your membership and participation in the organization. If you are not a member, I hope you will consider joining CERT. Please see the membership application online for additional information.

I am very excited about programs and events CERT is planning in the months ahead. I hope you can participate in one of our many events such as our periodic educational 'best practices' conference calls. 

In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy the photographs from the CERT 2016 Southeast Conference, held Nov. 10-11, 2016, at Marriott Atlanta Gateway Hotel. The program was very successful and well-received by all who attended. Thank you to all the speakers and participants.

Happy Thanksgiving!
