Hello to all my fellow Construction Division members!
As many of you know, at this time of year, our Construction Division members are working diligently on the upcoming 2014 IIE Annual Conference being held in Canada. Thanks to the efforts of our own Al Attah and Lincoln Forbes (plus others on the board), it looks like we have a solid lineup of speakers for the event! The final list of speakers and their presentation materials will be available shortly. Even if you can’t be a speaker, it is always a very fun and excellent learning event.
I also wanted to quickly mention another topic that we all have wondered about in our careers, the famed P.E. designation. Larry Aft has recently put together an on-line exam review course! If you can’t travel to attend the live course in Atlanta, I recommend taking this course. It definitely helps you focus on what’s going to be on the test - topic-wise.
And as always, I leave you with some special requests:
- Please let us know if you have any best practices to maybe share with us. We are always looking for new innovations in making our construction processes more efficient and effective.
- If you would like to submit an article for our newsletter, please contact us. We continually learn new takeaways from our fellow IE's that can enhance our own jobs.
- Lastly, please let me if know you are interested in serving the Division in any capacity.
George P. Gardner, P.E.
