Welcome back from an always too brief summer hiatus! Our season of events at the NY (Manhattan) Chapter of the New York State Society of Professional Engineers begins October 15 with a presentation by NYC Department of Design and Construction Deputy Commissioner Eric Macfarlane, PE at The Cornell Club. Commissioner Macfarlane is always an interesting and popular speaker, so be sure to register early for this event! Better yet, bring a friend, and consider adding your firm to the list of sponsors!
The slate of presentations for our monthly meetings will include The Oculus at the new Transportation Hub downtown, The New York Wheel project on Staten Island, and more. Look for "save the date" and program brochure emails in the near future.
Also coming October 22 to the Pfizer Auditorium at NYU Poly in Brooklyn is the NYC Design Professionals Day, sponsored by the NY State Society of Professional Engineers and the local borough chapters, and featuring Commissioner Rick Chandler, PE and other luminaries of the NYC Department of Buildings. Come and listen to the latest news, and get up to 5 PDHs!
I look forward to seeing you soon!
