I am getting ready for the big day
ACC
No, not the countdown to the Super Bowl, but rather the countdown to the 2015 Airport Planning, Design & Construction Symposium, to be held from February 18-20, in Denver, Colorado. Co-hosted by ACC and AAAE, the 2015 Symposium is shaping up to be one of the best-attended airport industry conferences of the year. I’ll tell you why the Symposium is at the top of my list: well-planned sessions that are technically outstanding; opportunities for networking with colleagues, airports and regulators; a painless way to earn my continuing education credits; and a chance to kick back at evening events and the ever-popular ski trip.

Carol Lurie, 2015 ACC Board of Directors Chair
LEED AP, ENV SP, AICP Senior Planner/Principal
