Show season is right around the corner, folks! Are you well-prepared? Or, are you nodding your head and going with the flow of things, as if being pulled around by some invisible string? Either way, let’s do ourselves a favor and take some time to reflect on what’s important before we dive in. Make sure you’re communicating with your people and reaching out when you need a boost.
Did you hear that the ASPE Tech Symposium is in Montréal this year? You might want to jump on that. Be sure to tune into a show that never fails to deliver exceptional education and networking opportunities for engineering professionals who want to stay on top of all of today’s important conversations, and let’s be honest, there are a lot of them!
The Greenbuild Conference and Expo is also coming up. I was pumped when the show organizers announced that the renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will be the closing speaker. (Sidenote: one of my favorite series on Netflix is Cosmos, a science documentary series narrated by Tyson. If you haven’t seen it already, please do. The way it is broken down is very accessible for the average viewer, like myself, whose eyes glaze over at the lack of drama or plotline.) Please stay tuned for our coverage on Greenbuild, a show that reaches toward the future.
More forward thinking (a little less forward?): Our December issue is the Engineer of the Year issue. We’re looking to feature an engineer, or firm, that has gone above and beyond to meet challenges, whether on a project, or by ways of forward-thinking in business. Do you know anyone who fits this bill? Are you a stellar engineer? Get your nominations in! We want to know about your projects and accomplishments. Please share with us in a brief description of what sets you, or the engineer you’re nominating, apart. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
