State of the A/E/C Industry Panel

What's Coming Next for the A/E/C Industry?

Spokane Convention Center

We would like to thank everyone who attended the State of the A/E/C Industry Panel event. We sincerely hope that you found it valuable.

A/E/C is ever-changing, and it's up to us to respond to the needs of our communities. Representatives from across the industry will discuss the outlook, what they foresee, and what the future might hold. Our moderator, Chad Heimbigner of Coffman Engineers, will guide the group through topics, including:

  • How the economy (locally, statewide and nationally) may impact the A/E/C industry in the coming months and year.
  • Recent or proposed legislation or funding that should be paid attention to.
  • Where can we expect the most growth or decline in the next 12 months in Washington and Idaho?
  • Is there any holdover from the pandemic impacting ongoing growth or development?
  • What are the main challenges for design and construction projects in 2023 and beyond?
  • ACEC Washington -  Van Collins, President
  • AGC Inland Northwest - Cheryl Stewart, CEO
  • GeoEngineers, Inc. - Dan Campbell, President, and Principal
  • BECU - Steve Hauschild, Market Leader – North Idaho, Oregon, Central and Eastern WA
