Welcome back to the 2018/2019 Season of the Houston Gulf Coast Section of AACE International. This year we are aiming to present several meeting that are going to be educational as well as informational. We promise not to bore you with too much details, but rather shine a light on new ideas in the industry. Our February “Rising Star/Women in Project Controls” panel discussion promises to bring us new visions on what our jobs could be, especially through the eyes of the new and upcoming younger peers. And we are going to try a new style of meeting in May, so please mark that meeting on your calendar as a do not miss one. Your Board of Directors have worked hard this summer to come up with a lineup that will hopefully interest everyone whether you are mostly Cost, Planning/Scheduling, Estimating, Risk Management, Project Management, Innovation or Leadership.
