This week, ACEC Ohio had the honor of hosting six states and their leaders at the Great Lakes regional meeting for ACEC National. Joining us in Columbus were Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Missouri. The group spent time at the Smart Columbus Experience Center and enjoyed a networking dinner the first day. The second day the attendees shared ideas and brainstormed on topics such as strategic planning, workforce development, member engagement and advocacy. This is the third year the Great Lakes Region has met, the meeting is a great way to collaborate on enhancing the value of ACEC and ACEC Ohio to our members. We learned from our Executive Committee Representative, Kenny Smith, the highlights of ACEC's new long-range plan.
Key strategic goals include:
- Leading Business Strategy
- Embodying Inclusion and Diversity
- Expanded & Influential Membership
- Essential Value to Society
- Vibrant Member Engagement
ACEC is planning to roll out the draft strategic plan to membership soon with a Board of Directors vote at the Fall Conference in Chicago. I encourage you to attend the Fall Conference, it’s within driving distance with a great line up of speakers and sessions. For more information on this conference, please click here.
