It is hard to believe that we just held our 10th annual Central Texas Infrastructure Design and Construction Symposium at the Austin Convention Center on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. Once again, we had a great attendance with over 425 engineers, contractors, suppliers, city and municipal employees, lawyers, and many other professions represented from the Central Texas area. Individuals attended from places like San Antonio, Marble Falls, Georgetown, and Pflugerville. It is great to see that our popularity has grown and we are now attracting a much more diverse population than when we started this Symposium in 2003.
It was great to see so many familiar faces and quite a few new ones. The Symposium is a great social networking venue where one can gather information on topics of interest while obtaining 8 professional development hour (PDH’s) for engineers. The Symposium also seems to be a gathering spot where you can get updated on the advancement of your peers, who is working for whom, and how the overall work climate is doing. You get to meet many of the City and County review agency personal that you normally spend time talking to on the phone or sending emails
This year our luncheon speaker almost threw me a curve ball. Commissioner Jerry Patterson with Texas General Land Office was to speak on “Texas History and Why It Matters”. However, on Friday the week before Commissioner Patterson was called to testify in front of the full House Energy Committee in Washington, D.C. on the same day as our Symposium. Commissioner Patterson “volunteered” the services of Railroad Commission of Texas Commissioner Christi Craddick. Commissioner Craddick did a great job filling in at the last minute and gave a very informative talk on the current state of affairs relating to the development of energy within the State of Texas and how that is impacting our state and local economy.
I would like to thank the Symposium Committee members for their donation of time and talents to pull together some of the best technical panels we have seen. We received great reviews. I would also like to thank the panel moderators and technical presenters for their time and energy to share their knowledge with the rest of us. This year we had 13 exhibitors who provided a great resource for their products and services. I would also like to give a special thank you to our Gold Sponsors: Compliance Resources, Lime Association of Texas, and Pape-Dawson Engineers. I would like to make a special “Thank-You” to Michele Yule of ACEA for her hard work and dedication to making this event happen.
After two years as Chairman, I will be retiring. The new Chairman for 2014 will be Justin Lange whom will be looking for new volunteers to serve on the Committee. If you have some ideas on topics or ways we can improve for next year, please contact Michele at the ACEA office or Justin at our next luncheon.
On behalf of the Symposium Committee, I would like to thank everyone who came out this year and we hope to see you again next year. Who knows? We may be meeting in a new location.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2014 Symposium!
