Leadership Institute Class of 2022 Recognized & Celebrated

Posted By: Kelly Veit ACEC WI News, Awards,

The Class of 2022 began its leadership journey back in September and went through six transformative sessions over the course of eight months. Despite the masks and being the largest class to date, this group formed a tight bond, asked challenging questions, and developed a new committee. This is an amazing group of rising stars.

Congratulations, Class of 2022!
