The 2104 ACEC/NC Summer Conference was held at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC this year. ACEC is an organization dedicated to helping and promoting engineering businesses (all engineering firms should join and get involved). The conference this year had a “camp” theme throughout with many programs and activities to participate in. The mountain vistas and cool crisp air made it tempting to skip the educational programs, especially on Saturday morning, but thankfully I didn’t. For instance, it is always a learning experience to hear David Stone speak on marketing topics relating to the design and construction industry. We highly recommend you check him out. The conference was a great event with quality time to interact with fellow engineers…yeah, a little like summer camp.
