ULI – Infrastructure 2008

Since I’m on the programs committee for the Columbus District Council, I was tapped to structure last months Infrastructure themed event. Coordinating the event took, what felt like, another 40 hours worth of time added onto my normal work week. Even more insane was the need to organize a panel of 3-4 local practitioners who have careers focused around infrastructure.

Having a couple great resources within the committee, I was able to locate great speakers and get them all scheduled for the day. Chester Jourdan’s speech about the vision concerning Ohio’s regional infrastructure was one of my favorite talks from the night.

Here are a few pictures from the event.

The Columbus District Council of the ULI hosted an event titled the ‘March Madness Mixer’. Centered around, what you might have guessed, drinks, networking, and college hoops. I would hope in not that order of importance either, lol. 🙂

I decided to take on the responsibility of shooting the event for future use on our council’s website. Hopefully the guys like them. Other discoveries, I really need a telephoto lens, lol. My fast aperture was great for the lack of light but the 24-70mm f/2.8L lens would have been perfect!
