2020 AAa/e Awards Banquet Update
2020 AAa/e Awards Banquet cancelled, see you next year!
After holding out for many months for the pandemic to pass, we have come to the difficult decision of not having the 2020 AAa/e Awards Banquet. The Banquet is always the premier event of the year – a time to honor and celebrate our accomplishments, to get dressed up, see old friends, make new friends, and pay tribute to the leaders of our industry. Different formats for the event were brainstormed, but after careful consideration, we decided that the health and safety of all our members and friends was most important.
We will eventually emerge from this pandemic and crave the opportunity to see each other in person – so please plan on joining us for an unforgettable Banquet in 2021. The good news is that we still plan to award $47,000 in scholarships this year to students pursuing the engineering, architecture, and construction field. Come honor and support the scholarship recipients at the virtual Rise Up Scholarship Presentation on October 29, 2020, where we will also feature three distinguished keynote speakers.
We will be hosting a special event with four top public agency executives to commemorate our Banquet. Top executives from LA County, LADWP, LAWA, and the Port of Los Angeles will share their thoughts at the Executive Leadership Summit on October 15th.
Mark your calendars for next year’s Banquet on October 7, 2021. Like the rising Phoenix that emerges from the ashes, we will emerge from this together, stronger, and better.
