A Message from the Branch President
Welcome to the American Society of Civil Engineers Wichita Branch! We are very excited for the upcoming 2015-2016 year. We have a wonderful group of officers and look forward to seeing you at our monthly meetings.
If you are a civil engineer in Wichita and are new to the profession or have been practicing for years, we would love to have you join us. ASCE is great way to meet others within our profession and learn new ideas or explore new concepts. Starting in September, we typically meet over the lunch hour each month and have a variety of speakers and topics related to civil engineering. We have a site tour each year and joint meetings with other engineering organizations. The year ends in June with a steak fry fundraiser.
Last year’s fundraiser was a great success! Proceeds from the steak fry help further our organization and help students interested in civil engineering through education and scholarship. The R. Spencer Delamater Scholarship was established in 1999 and is a $1,000 annual scholarship for a Kansas State or Kansas University engineering Junior or Senior. Look for more information on this year’s scholarship coming soon.
Community involvement is important to ASCE. The Wichita Branch adopted a two mile section of Greenwich Road from 29th Street North to 45th Street in Sedgwick County where volunteers pick up trash and make the area look great. The Adopt-A-Highway event is held twice a year and always ends with pizza, drinks and great stories!
We look forward to another great year and hope that you will join us for our first meeting starting in September. Be sure to check out our website for more information, including job opportunities, scholarship, community activities and meetings. If you ever have any questions or are looking for ways to get involved, please contact any of our officers.
Chad Banka, P.E.
President, ASCE Kansas Section - Wichita Branch
