We are proud to present the return of the ACES Networking Luncheon series. ACES is dedicated to connecting professionals between Richmond and DC, from the Architecture, Construction, and Engineering (ACE) industries – a sector that is very active in the adoption of Information, Communication and Technology. These luncheons serve as an opportunity for like-minded individuals to collaborate and network while hearing from industry experts, engaging in insightful conversations and enjoying a local dining experience.
ACES is not an exclusive group and is open to the public. Registration is required and space is limited for all ACES events. Fall 2022 luncheons will take place at the Fredericksburg Nationals Virginia Credit Union Stadium. There are several sponsorship opportunities available for ACES events.
