Thank you so much! Really appreciate you come all the way from OC to join me for the visit. Your presentation is really fun and educational. The club president called me back and really hope you can go back to give another one. I am not sure how your schedule will work since you live so far. My second visit will be a much smaller audience maybe just a few students during their summer break (their school ends soon). Just to meet them in person and get to know them. If you are still interested, maybe we can set up another visit for more students at the beginning of next school year and we can use that to attract more members as well. Anyways, I really enjoyed your presentation and the time at the school. Looking forward to working with you together next time!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to attend our ASCE End of the Year Banquet! We hope that you enjoyed the recap of all our chapter’s accomplishments throughout the year.
I would also like to endorse you for being on the ASCE Region 9 Board of Governors. Your passion for introducing engineering to young students was showcased by your involvement in the LA-YMF Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition and UCLA Seismic Outreach. The enthusiasm that you exhibited as an industry judge for the finale day competition for UCLA Seismic Outreach made the entire program a more enjoyable experience for our middle school students. I believe that you would be a great asset to the ASCE Region 9 Board of Directors.

Once more, thank you having us at this event. All the kid’s questions were fantastic and I had a great time helping out. In addition, working with your son was quite entertaining. I’m pretty sure he’ll follow in his dad’s footsteps and make a great engineer one day. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it on January 7th as I have another K-12 outreach event that day. I’ll be sure to share the event with my board and LA YMF members to help you recruit some volunteers. Keep up the good work and I look forward to working with you in the near future.
