BD+C's 3rd Annual Under40 Leadership Summit is just days away (Oct 9-11), and we'd like to make this great career development and learning opportunity available to a few more worthy young (under age 40) superstars in the design and construction industry.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors - Andersen Windows + Doors, The Vinyl Institute, American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), Benjamin Moore, and Nichiha - we can offer FREE registrations (a $495 value) to 3 more young AEC professionals.

All you need to do is get to San Francisco by the afternoon of Wed., Oct 9, for our exclusive tour of Autodesk Gallery, followed by an evening of fun and discussion with Art Gensler, founder of the world's largest architecture firm, and the start of our Vision U40 Competition - with $5000 in prizes at stake, led by Autodesk Fellow Tom Wujec.

All that, plus our premier tour of the Mission Bay/UCSF mixed-use healthcare district on Friday - and don't forget the famous BD+C "Marshmallow Challenge," where teams of U40s will battle to build the largest structure they can from 20 sticks of spaghetti and a marshmallow (first rule: you can't eat the marshmallow).

Want to join us? Contact me, Rob Cassidy, Editorial Director: rcassidy@sgcmail.com; 847-391-1040.

See you in the City by the Bay!
