Greetings! Hope that this finds all of our membership enjoying living in the only state to currently have no snow!!!! The ASCE Broward Branch has been enjoying a busy start to the New Year, holding our monthly branch meetings and preparing for many events in the near future. We are proud to announce our ASCE Broward Branch Linked In page, please go check it out and join! We look forward to using this tool to communicate with our membership on upcoming events and to receive feedback on topics of interest that you would like to see at our monthly branch meetings. We are also very excited that this year’s Florida Section Meeting will be held in Miami. Registration is now open so please go sign up and represent the Broward Branch at this terrific event!
As a key initiative of the Branch to reach out to our future engineers currently in K – 12 programs, we are very excited to kick off our West Point Bridge Competition again this year. We are also planning to reach out to many of our local STEM and Academy programs and are always looking for interested volunteers willing to assist.
In closing, I hope that everyone had a great Engineers Week 2014. I would like to give a personal shout out to the Broward County Aviation Department for taking the initiative of having their Civil Engineering Consultants come in for a lunch and learn with their staff. This was a great event and I would like to encourage all of our Branch Members to work with our local government agencies and clients to facilitate events like this so that we can continue educating each other and ensure we all understand the key issues which effect our community.
