Leadership Institute - Government Affairs 101 Recap

Posted By: Kelly Veit ACEC WI News,

The ACEC WI Leadership Institute's Government Affairs 101 session, held on February 20-21, 2024, proved to be a vital opportunity for the Class of 2024 to delve into the intricate relationship between legislative processes and the Wisconsin design industry. 

The session emphasized the critical need for professionals in the industry to comprehend the impact of politics on their work. 

A key component of the event was the incorporation of real-world experiences, as the Class of 2024 joined Legislative Day attendees. Participants visited their elected officials, thanking them for their support of our indemnification legislation and planting the seed for infrastructure funding in the next state budget.

This event not only enriched their understanding but also empowered them to actively contribute to shaping the legislative landscape that impacts their profession.
