ACEC/MO's 2023 Winter Meeting & Awards Banquet is scheduled for March 2-3, 2023, at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel. Below is the agenda for the entire meeting. 

8:30-9:30 AM - Tentative - Tour of St. Louis City SC's Stadium
(St. Louis CITY SC’s stadium is on track for the historic, inaugural 2023 season and will become more than a sports venue. It will be a destination in a new Downtown West district that will reflect the rich history of St. Louis and look forward into the future. The mission is to provide nothing short of creating architecture, green spaces and gathering places that inspire the city and fans of the region. The stadium introduces best-in-class technology to provide a unique and inclusive experience for all fans from the entire St. Louis region. The stadium was designed by ACEC/MO members Horner Shifrin, Inc. and Kimley-Horn and Associates.)

10:15-11:45 AM - Environmental Committee Meeting (With more than 9,600 miles of sewer lines, St. Louis is home to the country’s fourth largest sewer system—and one of the oldest. While MSD has been proudly serving the St. Louis region for more than 65 years, the history of the sewer infrastructure goes back far longer.

9:15-10:45 AM - I Want a New Drug: Tapping Into the Flow State Seminar (Speaker: Greg Coker, Greg Coker Development Inc.)
Description: Back by popular demand, Greg Coker will be joining us in St. Louis. Huey Lewis' hit song from the 80’s, I Want a New Drug, wasn’t referring to an actual drug but something more natural and available to us all if we can only tap into it. When you get in the pocket, there is a place where the music begins to play itself. “In the Pocket,” is what musicians have called “The Flow State.” Call it what you want, the key question for performance junkies like you and me, is how can I get this “New Drug?” The Flow State is the only time we get all five of these naturally occurring drugs firing at the same time (Cortisol, Adrenaline, Dopamine, Nitric Oxide & Endorphins). Join us as Greg Coker will outline how to get in the “Flow” by: Increasing pattern recognition ability & decision making; Enhancing concentration; Boosting long-term memory & creativity; Amping up focus & alertness; and Silencing that “Inner Critic.”
11:00 AM-12:00 PM - Board of Directors / Membership Meeting
