“Houston, we have a problem.” Fred Haise, one of the astronauts on Apollo 13 will be our keynote speaker to start the program, bright and early on Thursday morning, January 21, 2016. In that our theme for the Midwinter meeting is "Livin’ on the Fault Line: Cutting Edge Solutions for Seismic Events that Threaten Your Construction Client," what could be more apropos than having Fred Haise describe how he and his co-astronauts faced and conquered that Apollo mission’s crisis.
In addition to Fred Haise, we are equally thrilled to have Carla Christofferson, AECOM’s Executive Vice President and General Counsel, speak at our diversity breakfast on building diverse teams.
The meeting is the Westin St. Francis, Union Square, in San Francisco on January 21-22, 2016. Register Here:
But great speakers and programming is not all. We are having a Sunset Wine Tasting on the top of the St. Francis for our welcome reception on Thursday evening. Later on Thursday is the Forum After Dark event at Slide, a former San Francisco speakeasy.
On Friday, January 22, 2015, there is the Women’s Networking Luncheon & Reception at the Westin and, afterwards, the Escape to Alcatraz twilight tour of the infamous prison island in the Bay. Last but not least is the Saturday Napa Valley Getaway, an unforgettable tour of one of Napa’s hidden gems, MadoroM Vineyards.
Be sure to register and reserve your room at the St. Francis right away!
