Welcome Reception Hosted by the Mountain States Chapter of IECA (ticket required) 6:45 PM - 10:00 PM | Wynkoop Brewery
The IECA Mountain States Chapter invites you to join us at the IECA Welcome Reception held at Wynkoop Brewery on Tuesday, February 19th from 6:45 - 10:00PM. Pull up a stool at the large wrap-around bar, test your skills at the pool tables, dart board or shuffle board tables. Wynkoop is Colorado’s First Brewpub, home to tastemakers and rulebreakers, bushwhackers and envelope pushers. For almost three decades we’ve been brewing handcrafted beer in our modest basement brewery underneath Denver’s largest pool hall. Over the years our neighborhood has transformed and Colorado’s craft beer industry has exploded. And Wynkoop is still here, serving cold beer to warm friends. Kick off the 2019 IECA Annual Conference with a true Colorado welcome. Throughout the event you will have the opportunity to go on a 25 minute brewery tour with the Brewmaster. Ticket will include dinner and a craft brew (or house wine) prices are $20 for members and $25 for non-members, please be sure to add them to your registration!

Opening Breakfast & Keynote Session: Make a Difference by Loving What You Do 7:30 - 9:00 AM | Mile High Ballroom
Kick off the IECA Annual Conference and Expo with a breakfast and an inspiring keynote speech by Kenneth MacKenzie - Executive Director with Urban Drainage and Flood Control District. Confucius is credited with the ancient proverb “Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Getting paid to do what you love is easier said than done, but choosing work that makes a difference in the lives of others that they then love is just as rewarding, and much more readily achieved—you are likely already doing it! Reflections on 50 years of employment as everything from dishwasher to airplane mechanic to executive director, and the transformational power of not necessarily doing what you love, but rather loving what you do.
After a busy morning of learning, enjoy a tasty lunch while honoring exceptional industry professionals. IECA will honor its 2018 Environmental Excellence; Sustained Contributor; Outstanding Professional; 2019 Technical Paper of the Year; and its 2018 Presenter of the Year. We will also recognize our Outstanding Chapters for their contributions to the industry and members. Learn more about the awards and how to submit a nominee.
