Welcome to the ECC Association
Mahesh Thadani, ECC Board Chair
The 45th Annual Conference in Orlando was a tremendous success! We had record breaking attendance of more than 870 registrants sharing their insights, networking, and interacting with industry professionals from around the world. Registrants included individuals from North and South America, Australia, Europe and Asia states, reinforcing the globalization of our industry. Our Chairman, Manuel Junco, along with the Executive Board, the Executive Advisory Committee, and the events production team delivered an outstanding conference consistent with the theme of "Aligning the Stars – Connecting People, Projects and Performance."
It is truly an honor to be the Chair of this year's ECC Executive Board and have the privilege of working with such an esteemed group to build on our previous successes. Our 2015 Annual Conference will take place in San Antonio at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort September 9-12. The board is already hard at work to produce another thought provoking conference highlighted by world class keynote speakers and stimulating breakout sessions focused on the current market conditions. As we have heard from many of our participants, we will continue to focus on providing an atmosphere to build relationships and network within the engineering and construction industry.
A key component to supporting our mission of promoting thought leadership in our industry is the Future Leader Program. Now in its 10th year, the program consists of more than 200 participants from nearly 100 sponsoring organization. The Future Leaders are actively involved in developing the conference content, and benefit from this through networking and developing long term relationships with industry leaders and peers that they would not otherwise be exposed to early in their career. To learn more about the Future Leader Program, please visit the Future Leader website (http://ecc-conference.org/future-leaders-the-program.php).
On behalf of the Executive Board and the Executive Advisory Committee, I would like to thank our sponsors for their continued commitment to the ECC. We had another record number of sponsors for the 45th Annual Conference. With the support of our sponsors, we will continue to develop a stimulating and successful conference and enhance programs such as the Future Leader Program. I look forward to seeing you in San Antonio September 9–12.
