It is with great honor that I report that BSCES has won the 2017 ASCE Outstanding Section and Branch Award for Very Large Sections and Branches. We appreciate BSCES Vice President Charlie Roberts of Childs Engineering for working hard to assemble and submit the ASCE nomination form. I am deeply proud to report that BSCES won this award for the seventh consecutive year. Thank you to all our technical group, institute chapter, and committee members and leaders who work hard every year and make our Society the winner of this prestigious award, which recognizes all the criteria that distinguishes our organization as offering the most value to its members.
Also, I am very pleased to report that BSCES just received a $10,000 grant to support BSCES Future City competition activities. On behalf of the BSCES Board, I would like to extend BSCES’s gratitude to Tufts Health Plan for their generous grant and investment. Thanks to Olivia Richards of Gill Engineering and Public Awareness & Outreach Committee members for their efforts and quantitative results.
Donations and sponsorships are lifelines for our organization. Our programs and activities remain viable with this important financial support. I’d like to once again thank our Society Sponsors and Program Sponsors for their commitment to our programing.
Please take pride in your membership in this 169th year of BSCES. Take a leadership role and thank your company for supporting the profession through BSCES, or ask them to support BSCES with sponsorship if they are not sponsors. I am available to assist you if you need more information to take this step. Also, your individual donation will be highly appreciated and thank you for your support.

BSCES success throughout all these years could only be achieved by the diligence of fellow engineers working hard on their daily jobs and devoting time and effort to lead our organization to its prominent level nationwide.
