June 2012 – President Message

Hello to all Industrial Engineers and Friends of Industrial Engineers,

I have been fortunate to attend the most recent IIE Annual Conference in Orlando. It was my first time at this conference and I have to admit the first time ‘surrounded’ by so many fellow Industrial Engineers. Unfortunately I missed out on a day or so due to some virus, but was still able to enjoy most of the conference — including an inspirational keynote presentation by John McGlade (Chairman, President and CEO of Air Products), networking in the vendor exhibit area, attending some presentations of interest, myself presenting in the applied solutions track with a very interactive group of attendees, and finally, collecting our Gold Award of Recognition for our Chapter! I hope those that were able to attend the conference also had a good time.

Of specific interest in this newsletter is a link to the well-received presentation provided by Dr. G. Don Taylor, Jr., of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and Statue University, to our Chapter back in April. Our Chapter Board of Directors continue to meet on a monthly basis (typically the second Saturday of the month), so if you are interested in participating in organizing our next Chapter event/initiative, please do not hesitate to join.


Martin Franklin
Vice-President IIE National Capital Chapter
