President's Message

Christopher NyeCentral Ohio  Section Members:

I hope you all had a most enjoyable summer. School is back in session, so that means we also start a new year of ASCE activities. We are starting things off with something a little different on September 21. We are meeting in Newark for lunch and presentation on the Adena and Hopewell earthworks. These historic mound builders demonstrated a sophisticated knowledge of geotechnical engineering for their time. We will then have a guided tour of the nearby Newark Earthworks. I hope you can come join us for this event. It is sure to be interesting.

Can you help us? We need two additional volunteers for this coming year. Brooks Vogel has been our newsletter editor for many years, and right now he is pulling a double shift as newsletter editor and 1st VP. So he could really use some help with the newsletter. No experience required, he is more than willing to teach you what you need to know.  Also, Linda Kaplan was glad to volunteer to be our secretary this year, as she and her family expected to move to the Columbus area during the summer. You know what they say about the best laid plans. Now, it doesn't look like she will be moving to Columbus after all and will remain in Pittsburgh. Although she is willing to help out remotely for as long as we need, it is not ideal. It would really help if someone who lived in the area would step up to volunteer.  If you can help with either of these volunteer positions, please get in touch with me.  Thanks for any help you can give.
