The Leader Training Committee is pleased to authorize you to nominate one delegate to participate in the 2023 ASCE Regions 1, 2, 4, & 5 Workshop for Section, Branch, and Institute Leaders (WSBIL), which will be held Friday and Saturday, January 20-21 at the Sheraton-Le Meridien Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina. Each participating Section without Branches may nominate two delegates.

Participation in the Workshop 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 the Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders and the Eastern Regional 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.

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 WSBIL attendees are only eligible for Society reimbursement once every four years.)

Registration

The registration cost, per attendee, is $275.00. This fee will help to subsidize general expenses for meals and refreshment breaks scheduled during the Workshop and is not reimbursable.
