Networking Opportunities

Networking events are the social connections of the conference. According to Harvard Business School, 65 percent to 85 percent of all jobs are filled because someone knows someone else. The activities of the AEC Networking Committee provide opportunities for attendees to have some fun, catch up with fellow attendees and meet new contacts in the industry.
