ACEC California Legislative Visit Week 2021 @ Virtual
May 10 @ 11:30 am – May 14 @ 8:30 pm

The American Council of Engineering Companies – California, the American Public Works Association – Region VIII, the American Society of Civil Engineers – Region 9, the California Geotechnical Engineering Association, and the Structural Engineers Association of California are coming together for the first time to host our 2021 California Engineers & Public Works Professionals Legislative Visit Week (LVW).

On behalf of our five host organizations and our collective 53,000+ members in California, we invite you to join us for our LVW event, which will be held virtually May 10-14, 2021. We will also host a virtual legislative reception at 4:30pm on Thursday, May 13, which you are invited to attend.

During these difficult economic times, new infrastructure investment will create well-paying construction and other employment opportunities. There is no economic development without infrastructure. Our infrastructure systems play a critical role in continued economic prosperity and preserving our quality of life.

Unfortunately, our state’s infrastructure renewal and replacement programs have been significantly underfunded for a long time. While the state Legislature, municipalities, and California voters have made big strides in recent years to raise additional revenue for our infrastructure, extensive funding gaps remain. We look forward to joining with you in our commitment to increase infrastructure investment to repair our existing networks and plan for California’s future!

 Schedule

All events will take place virtually.

SMPS: The Progress Report: DEI in the Built Environment
Jun 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

The events of 2020 opened a door to have more meaningful discussions about racial equity—a topic that Corporate America has not taken very seriously both in society and specifically in the workplace. Companies have talked about addressing racial issues for years, but obvious inequities still remain even after protests and the pandemic. Part of what made this past year different is that the business community, after compelling social media posts and good intentions, have failed to produce measurable change when it comes to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).  As we progress deeper into 2021, where do leaders in the AEC and commercial real estate industries find themselves as they seek racial equity in the workplace?

Join SMPS San Francisco for a 90-minute webinar as a distinguished panel of experts talk about making the case for DEI to improve business performance, employee retention and recruitment, and address the missing first step: DEI data collection. The panel will share practical tips and tools to take real action for DEI.

Learn and Earn CEU
The webinar is approved for a total of 1.5 Continuing Education Units.

Content covers the following Domain(s) of Practice:
6 – Management

Registration closes at 5:00PM on 6/8/21. Tickets are non-refundable.
