It is the beginning of February as I sit and write this, cold and dank. Hopefully spring will arrive soon, the Super Bowl is set and anxiously anticipated. Usually, we go to a neighbor’s house for a party.
We have had several network events and more are planned, please see the announcement elsewhere in the magazine for details and register via the RES website.
We have resurrected our Strategic Planning Process. Changes are afoot, stand by for an announcement.
Planning for the upcoming Gala on April 18, 2020 is underway. We are looking to increase attendance at the event; any input is appreciated! The Engineer of the Year, Young Engineer of the Year, the Engineers of Distinction and our college Scholarships selections have been made and will be awarded at the Gala.
The Engineering Symposium is planned for April, 28 2020 (PDH fest). The planning effort is also underway (thank you Chris DeVries). We will have sponsors but no vender venue this year at the Riverside Convention Center. And always, parking will be free, and 7 PDHs and a free lunch are available at a very modest fee. Help is always appreciated, especially teachers, registration volunteers and moderators. We are expecting a record crowd for this event. Details are at http://www.engineeringsymposiumrochester.com; registration will be through the RES website, http://www.roceng.org.
As part of end of the year process, we are still looking for nominations for our Board of Directors. If you think you are a good fit or know of someone who may be, please contact us for more information. The process is painless!
Our tutoring and Science Fair effort at Dr. Walter Cooper Academy, were thrown into a tizzy with the recent layoffs instituted by the Rochester City School District, we should have those efforts back on track shortly.
If you have any concerns or input, or feel the need to volunteer feel free to contact the RES via the website at roceng.org or me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, I hope to see you at one of our events, the Gala or the Symposium.
