President's Message - July 2018

Mark Boyd

Dear Dallas Branch Membership:

Summer is upon us but you’d be wrong if you believe your Dallas Branch leadership has slowed down due to the heat!   Your Board and team of leadership volunteers are busy pulling together a full morning slate of technical institute programs, an exciting luncheon program about Texas moving toward hypermobility, and one hour of ethics for our upcoming Monday July 16th joint meeting with the Fort Worth Branch at the Arlington Hilton. Thanks to Julie Jones, your current Vice President, for stepping up to direct our annual joint program event!       

We also have lots of other activities coming up very soon including volunteer opportunities at the North Texas Food Bank (July 14th), locally held Texas Section Leadership Development Weekend (July 20-22) and  ASCE Government Relations/Public Relations University half a day training session on Friday, July 20th before the start of Leadership Development weekend. 

Long term we’re hard at work supporting CECON 2018 in San Marcos (September 19-21), Texas Section Younger Member Camping (September 21-23), and getting ready to be the hosts of the Multi-Region Leadership Conference February 8th-9th.  

Please see other announcements and postings if you’d like detailed information on any of these events, or better still get involved to help us organize them!  

 See you all in Arlington at our next meeting on Monday July 16th!  

Yours in service to ASCE,

Mark Boyd, PE
