Why Attend

A new Congress. A new Speaker. A House and Senate with razor thin margins. Heated debates on hot-button issues with outsized impact on our industry and its future. 

That’s the backdrop for ACEC’s Annual Convention & Legislative Summit, scheduled for June 11 – 14 in Washington, DC downtown at the Grand Hyatt just steps from Capitol Hill. 

Join your peers for this three-day event and leave armed with the political intelligence and added insight you need to make informed decisions about your strategic priorities in a changing economy. From the continued implications of IIJA implementation to the ongoing debate surrounding immigration reform and beyond, the business of the 118th Congress is the business of our firms. 

The post-pandemic legislative and regulatory landscape is ripe with opportunity for our industry. ACEC is here to help you seize those opportunities and navigate through a changed – and charged – political environment. 

The Annual Convention and Legislative Summit will offer the high value speakers you expect from ACEC’s marquee advocacy event including former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Borge Brende, president of the World Economic Forum.  The event will also offer attendees a full schedule of educational sessions and networking opportunities to learn, share and connect with your peers.  

Most important, Capitol Hill has fully reopened with the lifting of COVID restrictions.  That means, our in-person grassroots advocacy program will be back in full force as engineers from across the country take to the Hill to advocate for our industry.

We have the capacity to create a world changed for the better – and we’re excited to work together to get there. See you in June!
