Hanif Drzal & Jenny Bowers, our Program Committee Chair and Vice Chair, invite you to join our upcoming networking event.As our country and more specifically our region continue to re-open, we now start thinking of our re-entry strategies. During these summer months, most of us are still continuing with teleworking (#WFH), juggling work and childcare at home (no school), trying to go back to our office space somewhat, and trying to figure out how we can do it all safely.
Most of ACEC/MW's upcoming events will remain virtual, and one of our newly launched programs is “Wine Down Wednesday.” Our inaugural event was held on May 27, and it was a successful event. We are continuing with the event monthly: the 4th Wednesday of every month. Our goal is to provide a platform for our members to network and support each other. We hope that you can join us for our next event on July 22.
Jenny Bowers from Michael Baker International has recently joined us as the Vice-Chair of the Programs Committee, and we welcome her wholeheartedly. She is a great addition to our organization, and we are excited to take our new programs to the next level post-COVID-19. Jenny will act as the host and lead the discussion during our July Wine Down Wednesday event. And she has a few surprises up her sleeve! Attendees should make sure to have a napkin or small paper and pen handy.
Jenny shares, “It was my first time attending last month's WDW due to a conflict of schedule in the previous month. I immediately noticed that the event was well-received by many, and I met new folks in the industry. The camaraderie within the group is outstanding. At the beginning of the Zoom event, everyone introduces themselves and shares which firms they are associated with and the services their firm provides. With that information, I was able to determine to which of the firms I would reach out to further my professional relationships. It's truly a great way to network!” Please come network with us on July 22 – you'll be glad you came!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to either of us personally, ACEC/MW staff, or the Program Committee members with your feedback. We are here for you and we would like to hear your suggestions or input!
Continue to stay safe and stay healthy!
