Saying that Pasadena is widely known as a hub for science and engineering, the Council of Engineering and Science Society Executives (CESSE) announced it will hold this year’s ACCESSE18 conference here from July 10 to 12. This year’s conference will include a variety of hands-on experiences and learning opportunities for conference attendees.
“ACCESSE is a format that we started for our summer conference 3 years ago because we recognized a need for there to be leadership training and even more importantly a leadership network,” said CESSE executive director Sandy Marshall.
ACCESSE is the premier conference for C-level executives, as well as mid-to-senior level management teams in science and engineering industries that showcases big ideas, successful approaches and best practices for leading engineering and scientific societies. During the annual conference, leaders of 200+ engineering and scientific CESSE member and non-member societies gather big ideas from industry thought leaders, exchange information and connect to share experiences for addressing the problems, challenges and opportunities they face in leading engineering and scientific societies.
Other key industry leaders also take part in the conference as SEEKER session speakers. This year, speakers include CEO of The Planetary Society Bill Nye “The Science Guy”, Chief Staff Officer for Multicultural Affairs at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Vicki Deal-Williams, and founder of the Cure Adultitis Institute Jason Kotecki.
