Design-build is no longer alternative, but instead a mainstream delivery method that continues to grow in popularity. With continued growth expected, DBIA leaders and members must constantly look for ways to evolve the organization to meet not only the needs of members, but to help advance the design and construction industry. This year's Practitioners' Forum will take an up close and personal look at DBIA's strategic goals, and why DBIA Board leadership feel they are drivers to our success.  In addition to soliciting your input, we'll engage in polling on top concerns voiced by members in this highly volatile materials market and get a read on what teams have done to better manage risk.  Other issues to be discussed include trends in teambuilding, the emergence of progressive design-build, strengthening DEI in our industry, and more. Discussions and input from this important forum will be used to help shape future organizational goals and direction. Don't miss your opportunity to play a key role in shaping the future of design-build and DBIA.
