Greetings from your new NY Chapter administration.
We are finally back online! Thanks to our web team for the tutorials! Soon we hope to have everything updated and current.
I just returned from the NY State Professional Development Conference in Saratoga Springs on November 14-15. Major topices of discussion included Design-Build and the latest happenings at the NYC Department of Buildings. The stsate conferences happen twice each year, and are a great opportunity to meet our eningeer colleagues from around the area and discuss the issues that influence our professional lives. I strongly encourage our memebers to consider attending one of these confierences, so please watch tyour email for the next invitation.
Our next event, in conjunction with our other NYC Boro Chapters and the NY State society, is the NYSSPE - NYC Design Professionals Day on Thursday, November 20. This event features a keynote speech by new NYC Department of Buildings Commissioner Rick Chandler, PE, and presemntations by other NYC Buildings and NYSSPE officials. The event offers up to 5 PDHs, and will be held in the Pfizer Auditorium of NYU Poly at 5 Metrotech Center in Brooklyn. Sign up online through www.NYSSPE.org on the "Upcoming Events" pull-down.
You won't want to miss our next NY Chapter event, tentatively scheduled for December 8. The topic is Amusement Park Ride Engineering! Stay tuned for details.
