2014 Multi-Region Leadership Conferences Attracts ASCE Leaders from Sections, Branches, Younger Member Groups, and Student Chapters
Nearly 1,000 current and rising leaders from ASCE’s Regions, Sections, Branches, Younger Member Groups, and Student Organizations gathered for an opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills, receive greater exposure to the organization, operations, and resources of ASCE and network with peers and colleagues.
Organized under the umbrella of the Multi-Region Leadership Conference, three major Society components met concurrently, as well as individually, during this intensive 2 day event. The three Multi-Region Leadership Conferences which encompassed the Workshops for Section and Branch Leaders, the Younger Member Council meetings, and the Workshops for Student Chapter Leaders were held on three separate weekends throughout January and February, in St. Louis, MO, Phoenix, AZ, and Indianapolis, IN.
All attendees met in joint sessions and discussed common issues and concerns impacting the engineering profession. The Section and Branch representatives, Younger Members, and Student Members each dispersed into individual groups to focus on issues pertaining to their own organizations. Throughout the 2 days, the attendees had excellent opportunities to meet their elected Society leaders, and hear from ASCE President Over, President-elect Stevens, Executive Director Natale, among others.
The Conference provided joint networking activities and opportunities to interact and work together with ASCE leaders at various stages of their professional careers. One of the highlights of the weekend included a presentation on “What is a Leader?” from Industry Leader Council members Mike Loose and Jim Rispoli.
