President's Message


Central Ohio Section Members:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 ASCE year of events! There are a lot of exciting events and opportunities for participation coming up. Some of these include: the debut of ASCE’s giant-screen film Dream Big to be released in February,The Ohio Valley Student Conference to be hosted by OSU in April, Younger Member events and of course many interesting monthly luncheon topics.

Upcoming webinars, events and meetings can be found on the new Central Ohio Section website. The website will also be used to register for luncheons and other events. A big thanks to Brooks Vogel and Peter Narsavage for their efforts this summer to get the new website up and running. Please take a couple minutes to browse the site and see everything it has to offer.

I would also like to thank Carlos Vazquez, our past president, for his leadership the last few years and continued support of the Section. The Section board is here to serve you. Please let me or any other board member know if you have ideas or would like to get more involved.  Also let us know if there is a webinar that you and others would be interested in, provided that it has not been offered recently.

There has been recent interest in organizing a local chapter of the Geo-Institute. Stay tuned. In addition to Geotechnical, there are opportunities for participation in technical committees in the following areas: Structural, Environmental, Water Resources, Transportation, Construction, Energy, Land Development, and Surveying. There are also several non-technical standing committees available within the Section: Auditing, Legislative, Membership, Program, Professional Practice, Public Relations, History and Heritage, and Education. Please let us know if you have an interest in leading any of these committees.

I am looking forward to a busy and fun year!

Sincerely,  AJ Smith
President – ASCE Central Ohio Section
