When you join the forum, you’ll be able to immediately connect with A/E/C leaders all over the world, from those at small to mid-sized firms all the way to global powerhouses. These are CEOs, CFOs, Principals, Business Development executives, HR and Talent Managers and other senior executives.

Not only will you be able to ask for guidance specific to challenges at your A/E/C firm, you’ll be able to share your hard-won lessons and insights with others. Both you, and our existing members, will benefit from sharing facts, solutions, workarounds, and innovations that will get ALL of us through this crisis.

The goal of opening the Forum is for ALL of us to emerge from the Coronavirus crisis stronger, more resilient, and better prepared for whatever comes next. Request Forum Access
