Reflecting on a Successful Year

Posted By: Dave Brose ACEC WI News,

As our ACEC Wisconsin 2021-2022 fiscal year comes to a close, I want to let you all know that I am honored to have had the privilege of being your Chair this past year. Seems like just yesterday I was putting down my thoughts as my term was beginning.

I also want to take this time to highlight a few of things that we have accomplished over the past year.

  1. I am truly excited that we have established an Emerging Professionals Committee as we look to encourage engagement of our younger members. As I have watched this committee come together, I can assure you that we are in great shape for the future.
  2. We have made great strides to strengthen our partnership with the Department of Transportation as we work together to deliver a robust Infrastructure Program for the State of Wisconsin.
  3. We have made progress on improving our business environment by taking the initial steps to change how our state statutes define indemnification/duty to defend and the affect this has on our engineering firms.
  4. And finally, we held a strategic planning session in late May where we created a plan to carry ACEC WI into the future. Thank you to everyone that took time out of your busy schedules to take part in this.

As I close, I would like to thank our ACEC Wisconsin staff - Chris Klein, Kelly Veit, and Andrew Heidtke – who make our job on the Board easy. They go above and beyond to better ACEC Wisconsin and our firms. ACEC Wisconsin is an organization that I strongly believe brings value to our professional engineering firms. We are in good hands.

Enjoy your Wisconsin summer!
