March 2017 – President’s Message

Letter from the President If you are reading this, you are in a brave minority. Our crack analytics team (thanks Kimberly!) tells us that only 15% or recipients read the monthly newsletter. However, for every one of you there is another member who reads only the special events emails. So, we’re doing a couple things this month to increase the [...]

Feb 2017 – President’s Message

I love February. It means skiing and hot chocolate, Valentine’s Day, and my favorite week of the year – Engineers Week! That’s the week where the nation celebrates the contributions and accomplishments of our profession. Our chapter is a member of the Washington Academy of Sciences, so we are all invited to take part in the official [...]

It’s the end of another great year for the National Capital Chapter and it’s you who made it great by attending all of the events that the board put together in 2016.

Nov 2016 – President’s Message

Election day is right around the corner and you have some important choices to make this year. Will you opt for an experienced veteran or a brash newcomer? Luckily, you can have both, since Neal and I will both be on the ballot again this year. Wait – which election did you think I was talking about? All kidding aside, it’s time again to [...]

Oct 2016 – President’s Message

It’s October and that means many things to me. The return of cool weather, college football, fall foliage, and, for me anyway, time to pay my IISE dues. I have always used my own dues payment as a reminder to tell my team about the importance of getting their dues paid on time. Your dues directly underwrite our chapter programs, and your [...]

It’s Labor Day already? Where did the summer go? Even though it was a good one, I’m ready for the cooler temperatures and warmer colors of fall. Years later, I still relate this time of year to going back to school. It’s no surprise then that our agenda in September is heavily focused on students. Our chapter’s affiliation with Morgan [...]

August 2016 – President’s Message

If your office is anything like mine, it is full of summer interns. As a manager, this is both a joy and a burden. The summer interns bring with them a raft of enthusiasm, energy and courage that is as refreshing as it is tiring. Their endless questions provide an opportunity to reflect on exactly why and how we do what we do. Many of them have [...]

July 2016 – President’s Message

June has always been a busy month for the chapter, and this one was no exception. We started off with the York factory tour, followed up with the happy hour in Baltimore's historic Fells Point and finished with the Orioles game Mundel Scholarship fundraiser. I'm actually looking forward to a bit of a rest in July, but that doesn't mean I'm not up [...]

It’s finally summertime, and with the return of warm, sunny weather comes America’s pastime, baseball. I am looking forward to spending some quality time with you at one of our annual baseball game fundraisers for the IISE Marvin Mundel Memorial Scholarship. If you’re like me, you might wonder why you should pay more than face value for a [...]
