ASCE Wichita Branch members,
Moving into 2018, our current group of officers is proud to be working on new, exciting ideas that will continue to grow our membership. I believe that our members will be proud of the work that goes into our 2018 activities, so stay tuned for updates.
On anohter note, this website has been recently recognized by ASCE among our peers. It is head and shoulders above many sites out there in that it is updated often, signups for the event are completed electronically and the resources available are top notch. The branch's STEM grant and scholarship applications are readily available to outside teachers and students in addition to updated meeting minuites and governing branch documents being available for you. This past year, a concerted effort was made to update the newsletter section with articles and newsletters that could be of interest to us locally. Please feel free to notify us of any publications that you believe would benefit our members. Although not technically part of the website, last year's addition of electornic payment as an option has been widely utilized as well.
As always, please invite your friends and coworkers to join us!
