Learn some best practices for the planning, design and construction of Megaprojects and the lessons learned from past problems. Our presenters will address:
-- how to mitigate and improve the management of risk of professional liability exposure for Consulting Engineers involved in Megaprojects and other work
-- why the public perception of projects is crucial - and how to manage that process
Plus, preview  Megaprojects: Challenges and Recommended Practices, a new book to be published by ACEC in the fall of 2009.  Proceeds from the publication of  Megaprojects will be donated entirely to ACEC.
