As summer comes to an end (but not the heat), the Baton Rouge Chapter is ready to kick off another year. I am honored to serve as the incoming 2018-2019 President of the LES Baton Rouge Chapter. Our Board of Directors has been working on our agenda for the upcoming year and planning many exciting events.
The new Board consists of:
Kevin Beyer, P.E. – President Elect
Greg Trahan, P.E. – Vice President
Andy Shread, P.E. – Secretary/Treasurer
Kimberly McDaniel, P.E., PTOE – Director
Corey Mayeux, P.E. – Director
Carolina Herrera, P.E. – Past President
We appreciate every one of you and your companies that helped make last year a success for the Baton Rouge Chapter. Because of our Corporate Sponsorship Drive, we are able to fund our events, operations, and scholarships. Because of Board of Directors, we are able to organize and host events for our membership which promote our profession and professional licensure. And most importantly, because of our membership, we are able to have successful events and an active society.
The Chapter has lined up some exciting events for this year which include the LSU/SU Student Function, Annual Wintz Scholarship Golf Tournament, Annual Clay Tournament, MathCounts competition, E-Week Awards and Scholarships, Social Events, monthly lunch meetings, and our joint meetings with ASCE, APWA, and ACEC. More details about these events and others will be emailed to our membership and published on webpage (
). Also, don’t forget to check out our Facebook page (Louisiana Engineering Society – Baton Rouge Chapter) and follow us.
We encourage all our members to attend our events and become active in the Chapter by being an advocate for the engineering profession. If you know someone who is not a member of LES, please consider spreading the word by inviting them to join you at a meeting or event. Your input is also very important to us and helps us improve our membership experience and plan future events. If you have any suggestions, please contact me at
. I look forward to this coming year and seeing each of you at our upcoming events!
