ACECNJ hosted the 2019 Tri-State Fall Conference last month in Atlantic City. Nearly 300 consulting engineers, clients, owners, elected officials, vendors, and friends descended on “The World’s Famous Playground” for a three-day, must-attend event.
Atlantic City marks the third time that the ACEC Member Organizations from New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania have gathered for a tristate conference. The tri-state conference replaces each organization’s annual fall conference in that year. The tradition began in 2012 in Hershey, PA and continued in 2016 in West Point, NY. New Jersey was clearly prepared to take its turn as host and delivered arguably the most successful tristate fall conference to date.
New Jersey Congressman Donald Norcross and ACEC Chairman Mitch Simpler kicked off Monday’s main session with an in-depth discussion of taxes, the economy, and infrastructure investment. NBC News and MSNBC National Political Correspondent Steve Kornacki wow’d the audience with a lunch keynote presentation that took a deep dive into polling data and political trends leading up to the 2020 presidential election. Panel discussions with key client representatives from all three states populated breakout sessions throughout the conference. Technical sessions that offered PE’s valuable continuing education credits were plentiful. The conference also provided numerous networking opportunities for firms and vendors looking to build business in their home state and expand their regional reach.
The conference was not all work, however. Golfers took to the links on Sunday for a golf outing at postcard beautiful Galloway National Golf Club. The fish were biting for enthusiasts aboard the Miss Atlantic City. Monday night’s reception included two sets from the B-Street Band, the nationally known Bruce Springsteen tribute band and may have even included a guest singer from the audience!
New Jersey has waited patiently to host the Tri-State Fall Conference but did not miss the opportunity to deliver a valuable, fun and meaningful conference to member firms and friends from throughout the region. Thank you to all who attended and took part!
