Wichita Branch Update

 

Dear ASCE members,

First, congratulations to Macee Roemer, who was just elected to be the new secretary of ASCE Wichita. We had 48 people vote in our election, which is pretty good turnout! Thanks for participating in the process. 

Construction season is in full swing, which means our annual steak fry at Botanica is just around the corner on Tuesday, June 21. This long-standing tradition raises money for our college scholarship and a STEM grant for local teachers. And, it’s always a good time with drinks and food and all the local people in the industry. Later in the summer on July 28 is the sequel to last year’s fantastic Kansas Civil Engineering Conference. It will be a day full of speakers and CEUs, with social mixers and a baseball game in the evening. And then it will be fall again, and we’ll be back to monthly ASCE meetings, learning from each other and enjoying lunch breaks. 

Thanks for trusting me to be your president. I’ve enjoyed getting to know several of you much better these past few years. And I look forward to learning more with ASCE in the years to come. 
 

Daniel Mealiff, P.E.
ASCE – Wichita Branch President
   

Engineering Demonstrations at the Advanced Learning Library

The Wichita Branch of ASCE is partnering with Wichita's Advanced Learning Library to host hands-on engineering demonstrations for local youth on the first Saturday of each month during the school year from 10:30 to 11:30. Past-President Daniel Schrant organized our first session on September 1, 2018, and we are now in our second year of these come-and-go demonstrations. The last one was held on March 7. The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) coordinated a hands-on activity involving tensile bubbles.

Due to the current social distancing restrictions, the next hands-on engineering event is not currently scheduled. WE hope to have this event back once it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please contact Daniel Schrant at (316) 660-1778 if you are interested in volunteering about two hours of your time or know of a demonstration we can include in this series once it restarts.
