President's Message

 green-julia-150x150It is going to be another great year for the Birmingham Branch! The mission of the branch is to provide value to its members; promote the profession of civil engineering; and serve the public good by bringing attention to the services provided by civil engineers, reaching out to area students to encourage interest in a civil engineering career, and educating members and the public about the state of our infrastructure. The Birmingham branch continues to accomplish this mission by conducting monthly branch meetings which provide members with continuing education and networking opportunities, coordinating the annual Golf tournament to raise funds for the scholarship program, volunteering at the McWane Science Center Engineering Showcase as well as the Future City Program as part of the Richard C. Woodruff Pre-College Outreach Program, providing mentoring opportunities to college students, sponsoring members to attend ASCE national meetings and conferences, and recognizing our members via awards and honors. The branch has also been extremely active in the development of the ASCE Alabama Infrastructure Report Card which will be released Fall 2015.

The primary initiatives for the 2016 fiscal year include: 1) increasing branch membership to provide added funds a for the pre-college outreach program, enhance networking opportunities, and further engage the Birmingham community and 2) further support the area ASCE Student Chapters and Younger Members Group, specifically via support at the ASCE Southeastern Student Conference being held at the University of Alabama, support at the ASCE leadership conference being held at UAB, as well as providing meeting speakers and mentoring opportunities for the student chapter. Through the leadership of the branch and committees, we will achieve our goals.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our many upcoming events including monthly branch meetings, the Half-Day Seminar focusing on the Powell Avenue Steam Plant Renovation scheduled for December 10, the Annual Holiday Social scheduled for December 17 at the Wine Loft, and the annual Golf Tournament in the Spring of 2016.
