CIRT announced that due to the ongoing pandemic concerns it has moved its planned Spring Conference dates back six weeks to June 7 – 9, 2021. The change will include moving the CIRT - ACE National Design & Construction Competition to Monday, June 7th.
During CIRT’s Fall Conference last month in Arizona, the ExCom and Board discussed the possibility of moving the dates back to allow more time for the pandemic to be nearly over especially with advent of vaccinations coming online and people hopefully feeling more confident about traveling. Fortunately, The Willard Intercontinental is able to accommodate these later dates without any changes to CIRT’s program pattern and meeting space.
With respect to the CIRT National Design & Construction Competition, this change will allow more time for the ACE Affiliate student teams to work on their projects with a REVISED proposed schedule of:
- April 16, 2021 (DEADLINE) – All entries/registration must be OFFICIALLY submitted as required by the CAC online platform process [DEADLINE: is (11:59pm) in your time zone on the 16th of April].
- April 29, 2021 – Preliminary results will be announced, with Finalists being notified and plans made to bring a representative(s) from each team to Washington, DC.
- May 17, 2021 – Finalist teams will need to have made their hotel reservations in DC. [The finalists will be provided precise hotel/logistical information upon being selected. A stipend will be available for each team to be used to help cover cost to attend the final round based on need, etc. from the requests of the teams].
- June 7, 2021 – Finalists present to the CIRT Panel of Judges. [Exact information on date, time, and place will be provided finalist].
