The End-of-Year Banquet was held on August 10th, Thursday, at 6pm at Golden State Water Company in Anaheim. The mentorship committee organized a fun game (with prizes!) followed by a panel discussion. We also discussed how to improve and/or maintain your relationship with your mentor/protégé after the program is over and how it has affected professional growth.
By Charlotte Wu, PE, ENV SP The Sustainability Committee of ASCE Orange County Branch organized a luncheon with speakers from Rancho Mission Viejo, Irvine Company Community Development, and Schweitzer + Associates. The banquet room was filled with professionals from all disciplines interested in learning the future development in Orange County and how sustainability plays in the current and future planning. The presentations were eye opening to many as we all listened quietly while the presenters discussed net zero energy communities, conservation of stormwater and recycled water, and transportation expansion in neighborhood electric vehicles and bike trails.
By Josue Vaglienty, P.E. With the recent announcement by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) granting Paris and Los Angeles the 2024 and 2028 Summer Olympics, respectively, the countdown has begun. Much of the preparation comes in the form of infrastructure that must be constructed or reconstructed. And prior to that (or at least concurrently) – it must be designed by the A/E industry. A good amount of that work will land on the laps of civil engineers.
By Josue Candelario, Programs Co-Chair Have you ever been involved in a project where you found it difficult to work with your teammate? Or perhaps the interpersonal communication was not as efficient as you wanted it to be? Well, we all have experienced these at one point - and it occurs even in the professional work force. To help shed some light on this topic, ASCE Orange County YMF and Orange County Society of Women Engineers hosted a soft skills workshop earlier this year on April 11, 2017. The workshop was facilitated by Pattie Grimm, a certified training professional and an empowerment expert.
Please join the Board of Directors in welcoming the newest members to ASCE OC! We look forward to getting to know you and hope to see you at an upcoming meeting.
