As we begin the new year our society is starting to plan for our 2014 events. We have decided to focus more on smaller events that are more focused on specific areas of engineering, and to cut back on our formal dinner events to 4 – 6 times a year. We recognize that the day to day demands of our profession makes attending a monthly dinner meeting a challenge. Hopefully by reducing the number we will be able to increase the participation of our membership in these events.
With that said, please join us at our first Dinner Event on March 19th with a presentation by Eric Macfarlane, PE, Deputy Commissioner-Infrastructure Division of the New York City Department of Design + Construction. Mr. Macfarlane will be giving an update of NYCDDC's Managed Capital Program.
Furthermore, The NY Chapter nominating committee is now seeking nominations for the 2014 New York Chapter Awards.
The following awards are:
- Engineer of the Year
- Young Engineering of the Year
- Government Engineer of the Year
The awards will be presented in June at the annual NYSSPE NY Chapter Awards and Scholarship Dinner.
