Participation in the Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders strengthens and expands the
programs and activities of Sections and Branches through the interchange of
ideas, information and experiences, while it exposes incoming officers to the
tools needed to be effective leaders. Concurrently, there will be a Workshop
for Student Chapter Leaders and a Younger Member Council annual meeting.
We have worked diligently to ensure the success of the program and look forward
to your Section and/or Branch delegate’s participation.
The Leader Training Committee is pleased to authorize you to nominate one delegate to participate in the 2018 ASCE Regions 1, 2, 4, &
5 Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders (WSBL) to be held Friday and Saturday, February 9-10 at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo Hotel and Conference Center, Buffalo, NY. Each participating Section without Branches may nominate two delegates.
In order to ensure that your Section and/or Branch receives the maximum possible benefit, you are encouraged to designate the President‑elect, Vice President or Secretary‑Treasurer as the delegate. If this is not possible, consider a Younger Member growing into a responsible position within the
Section or Branch. (Please note that no person may repeat as an official WSBL delegate within a four-year period.)
Good News! Friday night’s Social is expanding to
include ice-skating and curling at Canalside. These events are free of charge
and open to WSBL attendees. Register for the Canalside event on the
younger member website so they know you are coming.
