goal setting and action planning. A wide array of design professionals in Wisconsin can participate in the program, including those with engineering, architectural, historical,
planning and surveyor backgrounds. Learn more about the Future Leaders Institute.

“Leading up to the start of the program, past attendees felt I would really enjoy the program and explained how much they benefited from attending the Future Leaders Institute,” said Severson. “The program far exceeded those lofty expectations.  There are numerous aspects from each session that I will be able to apply daily to improve both my personal and professional life.”

ACEC WI honored all participants during a graduation ceremony for the Class of 2015. The ceremony took place during the organization’s annual meeting on May 21, 2015, at Discovery World in Milwaukee.
