President's Message

Central Ohio  Section Members:

Thank you to all who attended our January dinner with the OU and OSU Student Chapters. We had an interesting presentation pertaining to Engineers Without Borders (EWB).  The February luncheon on the 23rd will be the Engineer's Week joint meeting with several other local engineering associations.  In conjunction with E-Week, the ASCE Younger Members have organized the annual STEM Expo to be held on February 25th.  That weekend will also be the premier of the ASCE film Dream Big.  ASCE members that attend the Expo will receive discounted rates to see the movie that afternoon.  We hope to see many of you there.  Remember that E-week is celebrated around the country and the world, so take advanatage of these opportunities to promote our profession and educate others about the contributions of engineers.

The Section is coordinating another Columbus Blue Jackets hockey game outing on March 16th.  Tickets sold out quickly.  The Jackets are having a great season (currently tied with my Pens) and it should make for a great event.

The Ohio Valley Student Conference will be hosted by OSU in April 2017. OU will then be hosting the conference in 2018. Please look for sponsor requests sent from the student chapter and consider supporting their efforts.  They will also be looking for judges to help with the competitions.  The OSU students are also looking for "clients" to assist with the seniors' capstone projects this year.  Let us know if you are interested in helping out.

Save the date for April 11th for our annual full-day Technical Seminar.  The topic this year is Alternative Transportation.  Please browse our website for MORE information about upcoming events.

Sincerely,  AJ Smith
President – ASCE Central Ohio Section
