Conference Planning Event - 1st October 2005


The ACEC 2006 management would like to extend an invitation to you or a company representative to attend a one-day conference planning meeting on Saturday, October 1 2005 which is one year out from the ACEC 2006 conference. Affectionately termed the one year out party,  the meeting does involve some work, but all in the spirit of fun and collaboration. It is an opportunity for sponsors to meet the local teams who will make ACEC 2006 successful and enable you to directly provide input into this conference program and planning. You might also use the weekend meeting as an opportunity to negotiate and finalise your company's involvement in the conference.


You will need to cover the costs of your travel and accommodation to this meeting. You are welcome to involve more than one person from your company/team if you wish.


Could you please RSVP by 14 September 2005 to

ACEC 2006 Planning Meeting - One Year Out


On Saturday October 1, 2005, the ACEC 2006 Conference teams will host a working conference to plan major strategic components of the conference. This weekend is one-year out from the main event, and is a major milestone  in the organisation.

Specific tasks will include:


To finalise the Call for Papers and pre-conference workshops


Setting up a  process to handle speakers, especially their technical requirements
