The AIC Annual Forum is a yearly conference coordinated by the American Institute of Constructors. Over 150 companies and universities are anticipated to participate in the 2016 Annual Forum.
All presentation proposals received on or before July 31, 2015 will be reviewed by the AIC Programs and Education Committee. Selection will be determined on appropriateness and interest of topic, level of content, comprehensiveness of session objectives and expertise of presenter. AIC reserves the right to make recommendations for revisions of content within proposals prior to acceptance. Participation as a presenter is by invitation only after review of the proposal. Presenters will be notified only of their acceptance.
Requested honoraria are not guaranteed and will be confirmed directly by AIC. AIC’s Meetings Department will contact speakers to negotiate honoraria. AIC Members note: AIC policy states travel, accommodation and meal expenses are the responsibility of any AIC member. Presenters are given complimentary registration if requested, but are encouraged to register for the conference.
All presenters are required to submit their final presentation to AIC 7 business days prior to the conference for publication on the AIC website, or for a post-conference program (if offered). These materials, as well as handouts are always requested by our attendees who need to reference presentations prior, during and after the conference to enhance their education.
Annual Forum Non-Commercial Policy:
Participants in AIC programs are seeking valuable educational sessions and are always critical of presenters or sessions that are self-promotional. Annual Forum policy therefore obliges presenters may not use a conference session for commercial sales pitches, self-promotion or unwarranted criticism of a competitor. Presentations should only advance the educational process; sales pitches do not and are therefore not acceptable. Speakers are not permitted to distribute company promotional literature, brochures or sales materials in any form to attendees during their session.
- Pre and post event promotion to Annual Forum members, potential attendees and registered attendees
- Promotion via emails, event marketing brochures, press releases, on-site program information and on the event section of the AIC website
- Recognition before, during, and after at the event as a subject matter expert
- Access to AIC members and vendors
- Contribution to furthering the education of the construction industry
