     Melinda Harger will be presenting "Unchartered Territory of Alternative Project Delivery".  An overview of the city's new charter ordinance, alternative delivery procurement procedures, and how expertise was highlighted during selection of the architect for the new police facility.  Melinda will also share the status of other City building projects, including the field operations campus and transit hub. 

      Keith Jackson will present an update on ACEC and the new Strategic Plan, the annual report of the Council, and will highlight our advocacy efforts and strength of the Council and what the new strategic plan means to ACEC Kansas.

    Presentation Guidelines:
    Content – The conference seeks to educate its audience and not promote any specific products. Space will be provided for all promotional activity.

    Preference will be given to collaborative presentations pulling together members of sponsor associations

    Certification for Continuing Education Credits
    Proposals should list any pre-approvals for continuing education credits recognized by the eight host organizations or other applicable credentialing bodies.

    Proven Speaking Ability
    The conference committee seeks experienced presenters with proven speaking ability. Those with a track record of speaking and performing well at large conferences will be given preference.

    Team or Individual Proposals Will be Accepted
    Sessions will run 50 or 80 minutes, depending on subject matter and scope. Session proposals should include suggested time length. Panel discussions will also be considered and may be organized and submitted as a group by a panel coordinator or by an individual looking to become a part of a panel.

    Each individual or team may submit a maximum of three different presentation topics for consideration.
