President's Message

Peter NarsavageCentral Ohio  Section Members:

Happy New Year!

We are starting off our new year with a chance to meet some inspiring people at our January dinner meeting. We will have civil engineering students from both Ohio University and OSU in attendance, and members of Engineers Without Borders. The students will give brief presentations on their ASCE student chapter activities, and then Amanda Engle from EWB will talk about their latest project.

Have you heard of Engineers Without Borders? EWB is building a better world by partnering with communities in some of the world's toughest places, helping them meet their basic human needs through engineering projects. ASCE has a strong partnership with EWB, and Central Ohio has both a student and professional chapter of EWB. Amanda Engle is the president of the professional chapter, and she will update us on their latest project, the design and construction of a new school building in Guatemala. It turns out there are some challenging aspects to the engineering on the project, which uses a combination of confined masonry and reinforced concrete moment frames. Come to our January dinner meeting and hear all about it.

Also, the meeting is at the Varsity Club near OSU campus. So if you are an OSU CE alum, come revel in the nostalgia that is the VC. Perhaps you will be surprised to hear this will be my first time at the VC. You will have to regale me with your college memories.

Finally, Engineers Week is right around the corner on Feb 17-23. The big lunch will be on Feb 21. Look for more information to come soon.
