Previous Meeting Summary
September Meeting - We held our September meeting at Little Creek Lodge in Little Suamico, WI. This meetings intentions was to get members to bring non-members and to get non-members interested in ASCE. We had a pretty good turn out, but we are always trying to get more people to spread the word about ASCE. Members and non-members got to have some fun shooting sporting clays and to enjoy other members and non-members company. After shooting sporting clays, everyone enjoyed some drinks and dinner at Little Creek Lodge. From talking with everyone, it was a great time had by all. Please see some photos of our participants shooting sporting clays. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4cPIcTYf8QzTjVNZ0RXNWtybDQ

January Meeting - We had a lunch meeting at the Marq in De Pere and Carl Sutter (McMahnon Associates) gave a presentation on the 2017 ASCE America's Infrastructure Report Card. The presentation covered how America's infrastructure grade was derived and what ASCE is doing to improve/fix America's infrastructure. We had approximately 30 people attend the lunch meeting. There was a great discussion at the end of the meeting with a lot of good questions asked. Carl did an amazing job with the presentation and answering questions the audience had. Thanks Carl for taking the time to give a great presentation.
February NWTC Engineers Week Open House - ASCE set up a booth for Engineers Week at NWTC. This outreach event was organized by Joe Zellmer with JT Engineering. Bob Mach with Mach IV and Jennifer Liimatta with Payne and Dolan volunteered to help out at the booth with Joe. This was an opportunity for NWTC students to get information and find out the benefits of ASCE. This also gave the students an opportunity to network with civil engineers and to find out the different type of work civil engineers do within the area. You can view pictures of the event at the following link:
A big thanks go out to Joe, Bob, and Jennifer for taking the time out to share information and benefits ASCE provides and to discuss the different type of projects civil engineers work on. Thank You!!!
