Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders (WSBL)
2016 Multi Region Leadership Conference, Regions 8 an9 Workshop for Branch and Section Leaders, Anchorage, Alaska
ASCE Orange County Board of Directors, Ramesh Gupta and Greg Herk along with a large number of YMF representatives participated in the activities of the Regions 8 and 9 Western Section and Branch Leaders Conference in Anchorage, Alaska, during January 22 and 23, 2016. Conference provided an opportunity to meet, and greet ASCE leaders from the Western Region, National Leaders, and ASCE Headquarters staff. It was a great learning experience for the upcoming leaders who were introduced to the available resources at ASCE Head Quarters for conducting the affairs of the ASCE OC Branch. In addition, conference participants were offered number of sessions on a variety of educational personal and professional growth programs. Conference provided an excellent opportunity for networking with fellow ASCE members.
On January 24, 2016, conference participants woke up in middle of night by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. No injuries and minor property damage were reported in the Anchorage area. My hats off to the Civil Engineers who designed the building where a large group of fellow civil engineers were staying at the time of severe jolt.
