12 things your Architect and PM wish you'd stop doing on the project
9:15 - 10:15 Student Alumni Room
Stop doing that! With over 35 years of combined project experience, we've seen it all. Your two hosts, an architect and a project manager, will help shed some light on what not to do.

Join for the tips but stay for the banter. The architect and PM don't always agree. =)
