As we all prepare our new year resolutions, the Rochester Engineering Society is gathering feedback from its membership on to how better to serve our engineering community. This includes several critical items as we make changes going forward.
How is it best to communicate with our members? Our website has been in place for many years and could use a facelift. The hosting server we use has responsive design templates that would make it behave better on mobile devices but we are not sure if that is enough. We have not used emails very frequently to help keep down the steady stream of emails that everyone needs to parse out. Should we email more? Is it time for social media? Which one do you prefer? Could we make it easier to keep you aware of the many engineering events in our community by tweeting or using our LinkedIn site?
The Rochester Engineer magazine is one of the more popular badges of the RES. What feature do you like best? Affiliate News, Articles, Employee News, Job Postings? Now that 7 of the issues are electronic copies, are there other things that would make it more valuable?
Can you give us grades on our most popular events, including our annual Gala dinner and the Symposium for PDH credits? How can they be more entertaining or more useful? Should we provide other networking sessions? Are PDH credits needed to make them be more attractive?
Please take the time to fill out our survey and we will work to make it happen.

Happy New Year, Mike Triassi
