“As a young professional and first-time attendee at ACE, I had a great experience. It was a huge conference and there were so many different events going on each day. I was able to fully take advantage of all the great events, exhibits, and technical presentations that were offered. I was also able to network with folks in the industry from all over the country and in different parts of the world. I definitely hope to come back next year.”
- Thomas Renaud, MWRA
