Rising Star

Melannie Wright with Gannett Fleming received the 2014 Rising Star award. Melannie jumped right in to volunteer and has truly made a difference.

She began by volunteering with the Annual Conference Planning Committee where she successfully took on the role of Sponsorship Chair. In addition, she volunteered to serve on the Central Chapter Steering Committee where she jumped right in and coordinated an outstanding October program. Melannie quickly became a great asset to both committees and was asked to take on the role of Central Chapter Committee Chair for 2015. Thank you Melannie!

Chapter of the Year

Congratulations to the Northeast Chapter!

This Chapter has continued to do an excellent job. Kimberly Holland of RS&H started out the year as the committee chair and Ken Duncan of Haskell continued their strong efforts. In 2014 this chapter conducted five successful programs. They were also the first chapter in the Region to establish a student endowment fund using the proceeds from a successful Clay Shoot. The fund has been established at the University of North Florida for the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction.
