The Carpenters’ Company of Philadelphia is hosting this year’s Master Builders’ Dialogue, Leadership & Legacies: Ownership Transitions in AEC Firms, exploring the personal and professional issues around leadership and ownership transitions.

The architecture, engineering and construction professions are on the cusp of a seismic shift in ownership as many owners and senior principals ponder retirement or stepping back from day-to-day leadership, while younger principals and staff are looking ahead to their own futures at the same time. Meanwhile, economic forces are pushing AEC leaders to sell, merge or pursue other organizational structures. Using first-hand stories and case studies from right here in Philadelphia, we will explore the personal and professional aspects of preparing for–and navigating–leadership and ownership transitions in AEC firms. Whether you’re a senior leader approaching transition or a younger professional eager to understand how these trends can affect your career path, you’ll benefit from this engaging half-day learning program.
