Hello ASPE Friends!

After a few months off this summer, we are finally getting ready to hit the ground running into our 2107-2018 ASPE year. Even though the Chapter meetings take a break over the summer months, I can assure you that our Chapter Board has been consistently working hard, and taking the time to plan out the next 9 months. Back in May, we introduced our incoming Chapter Board of Directors. I encourage you to get to know them and reach out to them regarding any questions or concerns. As your Chapter President for another 2 years, I look forward to working with the Chapter Board, and all our members to continue on with the success our Chapter has had over the past years. Our membership is growing quickly, we are getting involved in our communities, providing outreach to schools, and we are focusing on providing technical sessions that provide highly educational content. A few months ago, in June, I attended the ASPE Region 4 Presidents meeting where the Phoenix Chapter was awarded the Region 4 Directors Award for our increased membership, community outreach, and overall success over the past years. I was very proud of our members, and Chapter Board who spent so many hours planning and reaching out to new members. We are setting some very exciting goals for this year, and we will need as much help from our members to meet them. We are planning on holding multiple AYP (ASPE Young Professionals) events this year in order to continue drawing youthful members into our ASPE family. We would like to continue being involved in our communities, and providing aid and volunteering to those less fortunate. We would like to continue having successful events such as golf tournaments, tabletop shows, and CEU accredited technical seminars. Together we will make all these things happen, and will most certainly have a good time doing so.

In addition, please take note that the 2017 ASPE Technical Symposium is being held in Montreal Canada this year, from October 19th, thru October 22nd. I encourage you to attend if you are able to make it. I will be attending along with our VP Technical Christoph Lohr, and VP Legislative Jessica Wozniak. Jessica and I will be speaking during one of the technical sessions titled Ethics in Engineering. Make you’re your reservations today at aspe.org.

I look forward to seeing you all in September on the 19th at our first meeting of the year. Make sure to bring a first timer, or a new member and get some free raffle tickets.

Thanks for supporting ASPE,
