More than 1,200 current and rising civil engineering leaders from ASCE Regions, Sections, Branches, Institutes, Younger Member Groups and Student Chapters gathered at the 2020 ASCE Multi-Region Leadership Conferences in January, hosted in Philadelphia, Detroit and San Francisco, for an opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills, receive greater exposure to the Society programs and resources.
The three MRLCs included workshops for Section, Branch and Institute leaders, the Eastern, Central and Western Younger Member Council meetings, as well as workshops for Student Chapter leaders. Every breakout session and roundtable discussion provided opportunities for networking and collaboration among leaders from groups around ASCE. Attendees also had the chance to learn more about and ask questions of 2021 president-elect nominees, Maria Lehman, P.E., F.ASCE, and Dennis Truax, Ph.D., P.E., D.WRE, F.ASCE.
Future World Vision was a hit with members, through both the virtual-reality experience and presentations by Elizabeth Ruedas, P.E., QSP, ENV SP, M.ASCE, and David Odeh, P.E., QSP, ENV SP, M.ASCE.
Here are some photo highlights from ASCE’s 2020 MRLCs:
