ASCE President Elect / Section Awards



President's Message

Central Ohio  Section Members:

I want to take a moment and thank all of the volunteers and sponsors who made the Engineer's Week activities possible.  The E-Week joint meeting luncheon is always a well attended event and a great way to network with other local engineering associations.  In conjunction with E-Week, the ASCE Younger Members organized the annual STEM Expo, which had another great turnout.  We also saw the premier of the ASCE film Dream Big.  All of these events had a student outreach component, which is vitally important to promote and provide education about our profession and the importance of STEM.

ASCE's 2017 Infrastructure Report Card was recently released.  An overall grade of D+ was given.  All the more reason for the need to promote and educate as previously mentioned.  We are also sending representatives from our Section to the Legislative Fly-In on March 14-15 in Washington, D.C. to speak to our representatives about the important engineering issues we are facing.

April 11th is the date of our annual full-day Technical Seminar.  The topic this year is Alternative Transportation.  The Ohio Valley Student Conference, hosted by OSU in April, is coming up quickly.  Let us know if you are interested in helping out as a judge, if you haven't already.  Please browse our website for MORE information about upcoming events.

Sincerely,  AJ Smith
President – ASCE Central Ohio Section
