President's Message - August 2017


Hello Dallas Branch Members, and happy summer.  Thank you to everyone who attended the joint meeting hosted by the Fort Worth Branch last month. I heard great things about the morning technical sessions. It was very interesting to hear the direction our largest local engineering college is taking, and of course, many of you have completed your ethics PDH requirements for another year.

I offer a huge thank you to the Fort Worth Branch for planning and hosting the event this year. Those of you who have been involved in the past know what a large undertaking it can be. Also, a sincere thank you to Matthew Armstrong and Guiche Batteau for always being present to run a smooth registration experience for our members.

This month, our meeting is to be held at our normal location, the Crowne Plaza in Addison, on Monday August 14th. Our speaker this month will be from ACEC Texas providing an update on legislation and issues from the 85th session of the Texas Legislature. The Technical Institutes will offer Technical Sessions before and after lunch, offering our attendees up to 3 PDH’s included with your single registration fee. I hope to see you in a couple weeks.
