Can you smell the cinnamon and pumpkin yet?! Fall is almost here, and this Texas girl is looking forward to football season and double-digit temperatures.
September is our first month back after our summer break and our transition to our new board. This is a great time to reflect on the accomplishments of the past year as we transition and prepare for the year to come. In the past year, the ASCE Austin Branch has worked diligently to bring you relevant content, grow our community outreach program, improve our scholarship program, increase our social media presence, and sponsor social events, to name a few things.
I would like to take a moment to thank all of the hard work from our board members, committee chairs, and committee members. I am so proud of all that this branch has been able to accomplish and overwhelmed by the hard work and dedication of these individuals.
The September luncheon is special meeting. Not only will we be swearing in our new board members, but Dr. Jean-Louis Briaud will be presenting on his research. Dr. Briaud is a Distinguished Professor at Texas A&M and the President-Elect for ASCE National.
September is also CECON month!! On September 18-20, engineers from across the state will congregate in San Marcos for collaboration, training, networking, hearing about the latest projects and technologies, and building relationships. If you haven’t had a chance to register yet, you can do so by visiting https://www.texasce.org/our-programs/cecon/.
Lastly, now is a great time to get involved! We are currently looking for committee chairs and members. If you’ve been wanting to contribute in any way to help make our branch the success that it is, please contact me (830-798-6265, firstname.lastname@example.org) or another officer or committee member. Thank you for everything you do to support ASCE!
Thank you for allowing me to serve as your ASCE Austin Branch President over this past year and for everything you do to support ASCE. It has been an honor and I look forward to helping the incoming Board and Committee members pursue the goals for the coming year!
