AACE Seattle Section November 2010 Meeting
Please join us for networking and technical education with AACE Seattle:
"PROJECT CONTROLS CLINIC"
NOVEMBER 18th, 2010
**Please note the date change due to the Veteran's Day holiday!**
For our November meeting the AACE Seattle section has invited three local project controls experts to host a unique "Project Controls Clinic'. Harry Jarnagan, Brian Smith, and Steve Wageman will be offering their professional project controls advice (at no charge!) to attendees, similar to volunteers working for "Doctors without Borders".
Are you having a difficult time convincing upper management of the importance of having an effective project controls function? Are you new to project controls and excited to learn about the key components of our profession? What can you do to overcome common obstacles to project controls implementation and ensure successful project execution? Bring your burning project controls questions to the clinic or post them with your meeting registration. You will walk away from the clinic with newfound knowledge, tips, and advice without paying expert consulting fees!
