President's Message

A Message from Our President

Welcome to AACEI Chicago Midwest Chapter’s website.

On behalf of the officers and directors of the Midwest/Chicago Section, welcome to the website. 2019 and 2020 looks to be an exciting time as the State of Illinois as the new administration takes on challenges in infrastructure and private industry continue to look to the area as a place of investment and growth.

The Chapter needs to reach out to members and potential members (usually colleagues and recent graduates) to find things that interest and challenges us in our careers and the work we support. When we discover those topics and ideas, let’s try to share that passion by presenting those ideas, tools, skills, or simple discussions with our Section members. My challenge to everyone is to explore . . . topics and the mediums for sharing those topics. Show off a little bit. If you’re good at something or have accomplished something in the last years, here’s an opportunity to share and perhaps stretch your creative muscles. In short, don’t be afraid to brag . . . a bit (too much and it may not go over well). We can do this by discussion sessions, social events, presentations, or who knows what. Let’s all decide what we want to do. Just bring your ideas to the members and officers of the Section . . . explore.
