We assist Student Chapter in administrative self management and provide a consistent format for incentive program review. Student Chapters are rewarded for achievements in both professional and academic environments. We promote Student Chapter membership retention in ASCE Student Chapter and conversion to the ASCE National Membership. In addition we assist the Orange County Branch with the Student Night in November and advertise the branch’s scholarship, which is awarded at the Los Angeles Section Younger Member Forum’s Student Night in the Spring.

The Platinum Rule

By Elizabeth Ruedas, EIT THE PLATINUM RULE "Treat others the way they want to be treated." Although an effective way to get small children to behave, "treat others the way you want to be treated" sets us up to be ineffective communicators in the long run. We know that communication, or the lack thereof, is at the center of all good and bad relationships, whether it be at work or in our personal life. Similarly, we all like to receive information differently and perform best when those needs are met. Therefore, tailoring our message to meet the needs of others will not only help us become effective communicators, but strengthen relationships, improve performance, and minimize conflict.

The emphasis is on the benefits of improved infrastructure: enhancing trade and a better business environment, safer means of transport, and providing more reliability for all users. There’s no question it is an important topic. The difficult part is finding the right solution to securing dedicated long-term funding for America.
