AACE Upcountry South Carolina Section Meetings
Clemson, Greenville, Spartanburg & Surrounding Areas
Monthly Dinner Meetings
Every month, beginning August through May, members of the local section host a dinner meeting to get together and share their experiences and expertise in applying project controls in diverse industries domestically and internationally.
A new speaker each month makes a presentation on a topic of interest to the membership, covering everything from AACE-International's recommended practices for project controls to in-depth, hands-on discussions of local projects.
Everyone is welcome to attend; to share and learn from each other, and to just have a good time relaxing with colleagues.

The meeting location for the 2014-2015 program year will be held at Jacob's Engineering office in Greenville, South Carolina on the second Tuesday of each month beginning September thru May. In the past our monthly meetings were held at various business locations including Day & Zimmermann, Fluor, etc. until we decided to branch out to other companies throughout the area. See below for upcoming meeting locations and directions.
Join us and enjoy informative lectures and presentations from guest speakers on a variety of topics regarding earned value, risk management, estimating and cost and scheduling. You do not have to be a memeber to attend!!
