PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
It's soon to be summer (well, officially it arrived on Saturday) and a young, and not-so-young engineer’s fancy will turn towards…summer.  This will be my last President’s message to you all. My “reign of terror” has come to an end.  It has been my pleasure to serve as President of The Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia for the past two years. I feel that we have made some great strides but there are miles to go before we sleep.

On the local circuit, I will be ramping up the Professional Development programs of the ECP. We will look to do more tours and similar events. There are two “big splash” events I am pushing. The first is a “1day” symposium on the issue of Emergency Preparedness, Disaster Recovery and Resilience. We’ve got strong support from members of Philadelphia’s City Council and local universities and we are working on a cameo by a major government official. The date is October 8, 2014.
