Reading Branch Board of Directors - Call for Volunteers:

 

Hello ASCE Reading Branch Members:

Since the Reading Branch was transferred to the Lehigh Valley Section in 2017, the Branch has been working hard on becoming more active and provide to our approximately 170 members technical programming and events that will be of interest as well as provide PDH’s for those who are licensed professionals in order form them to meet the professional development licensing renewal requirements set forth by the Pennsylvania Professional Licensing Board.

However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Branch like many other Sections and Branches across the Society had to pivot and determine how to continue to engage our members in a virtual environment. The Reading Branch has been able to provide a virtual technical program which included a presentation from U.S. Representative Chrissy Houlahan where she discussed infrastructure needs from a Federal perspective.

I am writing to you to inform you that the Reading Branch will be seeking to positions on our Board of Directors. The Branch Board currently has eight members, four officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary) and four Directors. Officers and Directors serve two-year terms. For more information on each position and the responsibilities, please review our Branch Bylaws by clicking on the link provided below.

Thank you for your continued membership and I look forward to hearing from you.

John Caperilla, President ASCE Reading Branch
