JULY 23-26: Administrative Conference

This is the second year the Chapter will host its Administrative Conference at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas. The conference is a three-day event designed to gather industry leaders, employees, and their families together at a destination a little closer to home. The conference focuses on real-time issues facing the construction industry, and the panel changes each year. This year, we will welcome representatives from the Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Department of Public Safety, Federal Highway Administration, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the state legislature to provide guidance and answer questions on the issues of top concern to the industry in 2015. Outside the conference hall lay the 500-acre grounds of the resort, with a 27-hole golf course, full service spa, five-acre water playground, luxury pools, health club, and eight restaurants. Just outside the resort are several great destinations for families, including Six Flags Over Texas and Sea World.
