November 2016 Cost Forum Available

Regardless of your political affiliation, I think we all can agree that no one is looking forward to the political discussions around the Thanksgiving table next week. While the pundits and talking heads could not predict what happened last Tuesday, anyone with any sense knew that we would have a successful program with John Hollmann at the helm. John did a great job explaining methods of risk quantification and how they can be successfully applied on our projects. We had 20 people attend in person and an additional 26 registered via our web platform, with one tuning in from South Africa! A replay of the John's presentation can be seen here:

Please join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, November 30 for a presentation of the Applied Economics Office of NIST. Together with members of Society for Value Engineers (SAVE) and the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE), we will learn about the AEO and their mission to provide information to decision makers in the public and private sectors who require advancements in measurement science in the areas of sustainability, energy conservation, community disaster resilience, construction, manufacturing, and safety. Details and registration information can be found below. 

On December 12, 2016 we will celebrate the Holidays at the 2016 AACEI-NCS Holiday Party. We will be having a cocktail reception at Bobby Van's Steakhouse on 15th Street in NW DC with games and prizes. Details and registration information can be found below.

If you have not heard, Nationals has re-vamped their entire website: http://web.aacei.org/.
