Calling all young AEC leaders

September 19, 2013

If you're an up-and-coming leader at your AEC firm and are interested in advancing your career, join the BD+C editorial team at our 3rd Annual Under 40 Leadership Summit, Oct. 9-11 in San Francisco. 

Each year, BD+C convenes 100 or so young AEC stars for a few days of leadership development, networking, education, and fun. This year, we're adding a new twist: $5,000 in cash prizes. 

Our new XPrize-type competition, called Vision U40, will reward U40 Summit attendees who develop the most innovative solutions to today's pressing social, economic, technical, and cultural problems related to the built environment. Our U40 Summit lead facilitator, Tom Wujec, offers more detail on the $5,000 Vision U40 competition in this video.

For a flavor of the annual event, check out some of the highlights from last year's U40 Summit:
