2020 Michigan Infrastructure Conference Virtual Breakout Sessions
It has been a difficult time for all of us due to the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many day-to-day meetings and events have been cancelled due to the restrictions imposed by Governor Whitmer in order to protect the public health and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The Michigan Infrastructure Conference planning team from ACEC & ASCE has been meeting virtually to digest new information and react accordingly. Based on the current situation, we have decided to cancel the conference planned for May 12, 2020 at the Radisson in Kalamazoo. We discussed the possibility of rescheduling the event in the fall, but the fall months are becoming very congested with postponed events, and budgets at the state, local and private level are becoming strained due to a stressed economy.
We plan to schedule the Michigan Infrastructure Conference for the spring of 2021 in Kalamazoo, and will release the date as soon as it’s available. We will also work with the 2020 presenters with the goal of offering the presentations for this year as webinars in lieu of the in-person presentations.
Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding. We look forward to the day when we can once again assemble as a group to network and share knowledge as we rebuild Michigan’s infrastructure.
