Joint ACEC/CSPE Annual Dinner Meeting

Our annual joint dinner meeting for ACEC/CT and CSPE on Monday evening, June 15, was a great success.

Jim Rogers gave an inspiring presentation on winning more work for your firm. He taught us how to replace the usual superlatives in our proposals with memorable insights that relate to the client. Jim can be reached at (859) 428 – 85504 or email

Laura Cruickshank, master planner and chief architect of the University of Connecticut and Mike Jednak, assistant vice president for facilities operations and building services at UConn, gave a great presentation on the University’s plans for capital improvements and infrastructure.

We also honored two presidents who are completing their terms of office. ACEC/CT president, Jerry Gerletz, and Chris Eggers, CSPE president, are completing their terms of office and received a plaque for their service.

Executive Director Paul Brady updated the members on recent achievements in the Connecticut General Assembly. We managed to pass a groundbreaking statute of limitations for firms contracting the state. We also were able to defeat a proposal to impose the state sales tax on engineering and other professional services.
