Engineers, take pride!

It is once again time to commemorate and celebrate the work of our profession. National Engineers Week is right around the corner from February 18-24. This is your time to vocalize your contributions in the community and share your accomplishments. Spread the word about the need for engineers and encourage young minds to explore science, math and technology.

In the spirit of Engineers Week, the Austin Branch is participating in several events this month to help promote engineering. Check out Engineers Day at both the Thinkery Museum and the Science Mill where we'll be leading hands-on activities and bringing engineering to life for parents, educators and kids. Even catch a showing of Dream Big! Join us for trivia night hosted by our Younger Member Forum and network with other professional organizations. Join thousands of elementary and middle schoolers for Girl Day at UT Austin. And don't forget about the annual Engineers Banquet, hosted by the Texas Society of Professional Engineers and co-sponsored by the ASCE Austin Branch, where we'll have the honor of unveiling this year's Engineer of the Year.

We encourage you to volunteer or attend an engineering event in your community. If you can’t make one of ours, seek out another activity. But however you choose to spend your Engineers Week, be sure to share your story with others. You never know who you may inspire.

Please note that we will not be hosting a February Branch luncheon and we will resume our regular schedule in March. Please contact me (512-279-5437, or another officer or committee member to let us know how we can be helpful to you.

Thank you for everything you do to support ASCE!
