The ACECH State-Counties-City Symposium held on April 4, 2017 at the Hale Koa Hotel, provided networking and educational opportunities for ACECH members and industry partners. Governor David Ige welcomed attendees and acknowledged the critical role design professionals play in building a better Hawai’i. Representatives of various government agencies, including officials from Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii Counties, presented workshops focusing on upcoming projects, agency specific rules and regulations, strategic initiatives, and other topics to improve and enhance the knowledge base, technical expertise, and business bottom-line of member firms. The closing event, an informal Pau Hana, provided the perfect opportunity for attendees to compare notes and network on both professional and personal levels. Mahalo to all who attended!
