President's Message

Peter NarsavageCentral Ohio  Section Members:

I hope your Thanksgiving was enjoyable. I greatly enjoyed having my family gather in Columbus this year. Now that my children have grown and left the nest, I savor the opportunities to have everyone together again. One thing I am thankful for is this great organization, ASCE, and the wonderful, supportive engineers that are a part of it.

And thanks go out to Mr. Chad Ratkovich with Beaver Excavating for an interesting presentation on the Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway. We tried out a new venue for us on the south side of town, at the Hampton Inn Scioto Downs. Since the hotel does not have any food service, City BBQ catering provided some delicious barbecue. I think we will keep this location on our list of venues.

The end of the year is fast approaching. Do you still need a few PDHs? The ASCE webinars are a great way to get an hour or two. Our section is hosting quite a few coming up in December to help you out. We pay the registration fee and then have one of our members host the presentation at their company office. Any section member that wishes to attend can register and earn some free professional development hours.

Imagine traveling to Chicago in less than half an hour. That's the vision for Hyperloop. Come to our December luncheon and hear more about it.

Finally, here is a sneak peek at some of the things we have planned for you. Hayward Baker is performing some jet grouting at the Ohio State University. We are trying to arrange a field trip to see it in January. The big STEM Expo is set for March 2, 2019, and volunteer and sponsorship requests should be going out soon. And we have some plans for a fun recreational event for early next year. We'll keep you posted.
