ASCE Section/Branch/Liaison Workshop/ICSI 2014 PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 02 May 2014 10:41

In January 2014, the Committee on Sustainability (COS) emailed ASCE Section and Branch Presidents asking them to identify local Sustainability Leaders. These individuals along with already established Section, Branch and ASCE Sustainability Committee Liaisons met in Atlanta in February. It was a very productive and engaging workshop with over 20 representatives from all over the country. Each participant presented their local experiences and ideas with the larger COS group. Participants provided a written report and a PowerPoint presentation that has been compiled into a report. This information will feed into a major task of developing  program content for a subsequent workshop on "Engineers as Sustainability Leaders at the Community Level" to be held at the International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure, (ISCI 2014) November 6-8, 2014 in Long Beach, California.

The COS Working Group members and other ASCE sustainability leadership attendees who met in Atlanta are encouraged to participate in the ASCE International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI) in Long Beach, California. As part of the ASCE COS plan, the Strategic Communications Committee of the COS is establishing a National Sustainability Strategy Working Group for Sections, Branches, and Institutes.

The ASCE Committee on Sustainability (COS) will hold a face-to-face meeting in Long Beach on Wednesday, November 5, 2014; Working Group members are welcome to attend. Working Group members and ASCE sustainability leadership individuals are required to register for and participate in the ICSI 2014 Conference. Interactions and enhanced understanding from ICSI technical sessions will help Working Group members and ASCE sustainability leaders facilitate a workshop on the afternoon of November 8th immediately following the conference.
