“Houston, we have a problem,” has become a catch-phrase for an impending disaster. Our kickoff speaker literally lived through the moment when it was first spoken. Apollo 13 astronaut, Fred Haise, will describe for us how that crisis was met and provide steps for facing a crisis, whether in space or down here on earth! In addition, Carla Christofferson, AECOM's Executive Vice President and General Counsel, will address building diverse teams.
You will have the opportunity to taste local wines, both during the Sunset Wine Tasting and Welcome Reception at the top of the St. Francis on Thursday evening and on the Napa Valley Getaway on Saturday (ticketed event). A Forum After Dark event on Thursday will be available for night owls. Friday afternoon, you can Escape to Alcatraz for a twilight tour of the infamous island prison in the Bay (ticketed event).
San Francisco is always an incredible location for the Forum's meetings, so be sure to register for the Midwinter Meeting and reserve your room at the St. Francis right away!
