Upcoming Events

Per usual, we break from holding monthly dinner meetings for the summer.  As we conclude another successful year, the board would like to thank each of you that took time out of your busy schedule to attend our events.  We are consistently one of the strongest technical groups in the nation because of you!  

This year by-the-numbers:

531:  total dinner meeting attendance from Sept. '17 to May '18

53:  average meeting attendance

72: largest meeting attendance (topic: eagle creek fire)

55:  fall '17 short course attendance  

Special thanks to all our speakers this year:  Dr. Vaughn Griffiths, CSM; George Filz, Virginia Tech; Ken Green, Jacobs; Dr. Diane Moug, PSU; Keith Mills, Oregon Water Res. Dept.; Dr. Andrew Whittle, MIT; Dr. Tom O'Rourke, Cornell; Rob Jameson, Malcolm; Stephen Hay, ODOT, and Ryan Cole, USFS; and Mark Havekost, McMillen Jacobs, and Josh Yacknowitz, ARUP

Our next meeting will be held in early September.   See you there!
