ASCE North Carolina's 2017 Legislative Reception
The North Carolina Section of ASCE held its 2017 Legislative Reception on May 10, 2017, at the Museum of Natural History in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. The event had an amazing turnout by ASCE members! Although conflicting events led to few legislators and staff being in attendance this year, many attendees reported that the event served as a tremendous networking opportunity for members and visitors. Schnabel Engineering presented a poster on dam safety and inspection, ITRE presented a poster discussing Diverging Diamond Interchanges, MI Engineering had a poster espousing bridge inspection and preservation, and several PhD students from NCSU displayed posters relevant to their research. We encourage ASCE members to be sure to invite their representatives and senators from the General Assembly to next year's event.
