I trust everyone enjoyed the Holidays and are ready to start this New Year!
Our January meeting is set. On the 21st, AECOM will provide an up to date discussion of the SUM-76-10.00 Main/Broadway Interchange Reconstruction. The program location will be at Quaker Station ballroom at the University of Akron. Invite your construction Contractor Buddies to share a dinner and program as this project will be nearing a sale date with ODOT.
For our December meeting, we utilized a service called Eventbrite, an online service for registration-attendance-payment for any type of event our section organizes. This process seemed to serve us quite well.
A grateful Thank You goes to the folks from the City of Akron who provided a panel discussion of the on-going, Akron Waterways Renewed project at Greystone Hall. We enjoyed a successful event with 75 in attendance. We also thank our meeting sponsors, ADS, HDR, H. R. Gray and PS Construction Fabrics, who have made financial contributions to ease the cost of the event to our membership.
February is E-Week and next month there will be additional information available.
I take pride in passing along some good news from our Younger Member group of our ASCE Section. The Younger Members won $1,000.00 for the 2016 Small Team Younger Member Renewal Race. As member Andrew Long stated "WOO-HOO, We won!"
Together, we will all make the best of this New Year!
Please watch your inboxes for our monthly newsletters and periodic announcements. If you have an interest in getting involved on the leadership team, please do not hesitate to contact any of the members of the Board.
