Developing Leaders Group Relaunches
With a new year comes new initiatives, and ACEC is thrilled that the start of 2018 has brought with it the re-invigoration of our Developing Leaders Group.
ACEC Washington’s Developing Leaders Group is comprised and led by today’s rising stars in the design profession. The DLG’s purpose is to foster relationships among the next generation of leaders. Through events targeted to the up-and-coming leaders, DLG offers education, information, and just good old fashion fun.
Our newest DLG offering is our Happy Hour Networking Series. Hosted by ACEC Member Firms, these free evening events feature short presentations and group discussions about pertinent industry topics. We offer free snacks and drinks, raffle prizes, and a great opportunity to talk with fellow future leaders. Topics have included business marketing, mentoring, project delivery methods, and more.
We encourage anyone who is striving to improve their career path partake in the DLG offerings, and get involved with the group. Establishing connections and contributing to the network of the next group of firm leaders will provide amazing peer support as new leaders face the challenges and successes of the profession. A special thank you to Brad Lentz of Notkin Mechanical Engineers, Laura Ruppert of Osborn Consulting, and Ben Upsall of GeoEngineers for spearheading the effort!
