With the arrival of the Autumnal Equinox Fall is officially upon us!
As I reflect on my year as President of the ASCE Maryland Section, I have found the opportunity both personally and professionally rewarding. I could not have had a successful year without the support of our 50+ active volunteers across the section leadership in numerous critical roles that keep the section operational on a daily basis. A big thank you to everyone who volunteers their time in support of our Section for the accomplishment of this year's presidential goals.
I'm proud to report that we made significant progress achieving the goals I established one year ago. We exceeded the 1,000 attendee goal with over 1,300 attendees at events section wide. We achieved direct engagement with three of our four student chapters through a variety of virtual and in-person events. Lastly, working towards filling all volunteer roles, we added seven new committee chairs to our volunteer leadership! It has been a busy year and I'm confident in the incoming officers to continue building on this momentum to keep growing our section.
I hope you have found value in your membership in ASCE Maryland, and urge you to continue to look for ways to become more active in ASCE across the state. We have numerous opportunities for networking and continuing education coming up this fall (details below). I encourage each of you to find a way to make the most of your membership in the coming year.
