Join us as we welcome Robert “Bob” Powers who took over as the 10th General Manager for BART in July of 2019.
A 20-year engineering veteran, Bob started his BART career as Assistant General Manager in Planning, Development and Construction and now oversees the $2.4 billion BART budget for 2020, which will include early plans for the much needed Second Crossing, TOD project development at the Ashby and North Berkeley BART Stations, 300+ additional rail cars to their Fleet of the Future, continuation of the Systemwide Transbay Corridor Core Capacity Project, and ongoing infrastructure projects using Measure RR funds.

This lunchtime event will allow members and non-members alike the opportunity to meet, learn and glean valuable insight from decision makers within large consulting/design firms, as well as end clients who choose consultant teams for their projects.
The event will include a panel of industry professionals: Decision makers from three prime consulting firms, and decision makers from 1) a local public agency, 2) a healthcare organization, and a higher education representative.
The goals are to 1) allow prime firms to help shed light on what they look for when assembling a compelling proposal team, and 2) those representing the end clients can speak to what they look for in a winning proposal and/or interview from a pursuit team.
Check back for sponsorship opportunities, ticket prices, and special offerings for certified SBE, MBE, and WBE companies to showcase their firms at the event.
