LAST MONTH RECAP: January’s “The Bridge” program was hosted by Samantha Vail and Nick Phillips. Ed Penton, PE presented "Organizing Resources for the PE Exam" followed by a Q&A panel of recent test takers to answer any question on their experiences taking the PE exam. The panelists were Phillip Alcorn, PE, Daniel Diaz, Samuel Ewing, Hosna Mousavipour, and Blake Thrower. Our previous program has been posted to the Branch YouTube Channel.

We are very excited about this program! Announcements will be posted in the near future for the first of these sessions, so STAY TUNED. We will be doing our best to have updates across Newsletters, Meeting Announcements, YM Emails, etc. For more information regarding future Bridge Program events, or if you are interested in getting involved with the program, please contact:
