As part of their mission to Elevate the Industry, Zweig Group expanded this award to cover the entire AEC industry.
Rising Star Award winners will be featured in a special issue of Civil + Structural Engineer Magazine (read about the 2022 Rising Stars here) and honored at Zweig Group’s annual conference, the Elevate AEC Conference.
The nomination period closes at midnight (Eastern Time) on March 24, 2023.
