2014 Winter Leadership Forum Sponsors


For information on sponsoring the 2015 NCSEA Winter Leadership Forum, contact Susan Cross at 312.649.4600, ext. 204.


The 2015 NCSEA Winter Leadership Forum will be held January 29-30, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Coral Gables in Florida. The Forum draws principals and leaders from a diverse group of structural engineering firms to engage in thought-provoking sessions, meaningful interaction, and networking. This two-day Forum will feature top-notch, thought-provoking speakers and case studies.

2015 Winter Leadership sessions:

How do you provide additional value to your clients? What are the buyers of your services thinking, and what are they looking for? Whe do you compete on prices? How do you train your staff to constantly be selling your services? What is your banker thinking, and how does a bank value an engineering firm?

These questions and more will be addressed at NCSEA's third Winter Leadership Forum. Structural engineering leaders and firm principals will gather to discuss the issues confronting engineering firms in today's environment.

The topics of this year's Forum will focus not only on ways to grow your firm and provide additional value, but also on issues relating to acquisition and finance, including:

- When is it time to expand?
- Is your goal to become better or busier?
- Should you grow organically or through acquisition?
- Case Study: Purchase or Pass?

The Forum will feature roundtable discussions, presentations from firm principals and professionals in banking and finance, and a debate between structural engineering leaders on "How to Grow."
