Tech Talks on Wednesdays

Dear AACE member:

In these difficult times we recognize that you may currently have travel restrictions and also be confined to your home. Eventually when this pandemic passes there will be an even greater need for proficient project professionals to help get companies back on their feet. This is why AACE is offering you an opportunity to watch AACE Conference & Expo presentations for your personal continuing education, and if you are AACE certified, also earn CEUs toward recertification. Each presentation will be offered for one week, then it will expire. However, your CEUs earned will remain on your profile. The “Tech Talks" will be offered on Wednesdays for the period of time that our members will be working from home as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each week on Wednesday we will be offering a free presentation by some of the top industry leaders for you to watch and learn. Join other members on the AACE Communities in the Tech Talks group for ongoing discussions on the presentations and to share your recommendations or resources during this time that everyone is required to stay at home. We encourage you to engage with your fellow members and to share what resources, both work and home/family resources, that may help others navigate this difficult time.

Stay smart. Stay safe.


Each presentation will be offered for one week from the date it is aired, then it will expire. However, your CEUs earned will remain on your profile. Note: In order to receive proof of CEU credits, you must watch each presentation in its entirety.
