Fall has been for our project officers and project managers. Over the past several weeks, our staff have traveled to several different events and conferences:
Cuyahoga Community College Foundation 2017 Presidential Scholarship Luncheon
Senior Vice President Brett Neff attended the 2017 Presidential Scholarship Luncheon. R.E. Warner enjoys supporting this yearly event that raises funds to award scholarships to Tri-C students. Since its first event in 1992, the luncheon has raised more than $17 million to help Tri-C students with financial need pursue higher education. This year, Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer was the keynote speaker.
Society for Marketing Professional Services’ Executive Forum
R.E. Warner’s executive management team attended The Northeast Ohio Chapter of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Executive Forum. The Executive Forum features a panel of business leaders who share knowledge, experiences, and their passion to grow their businesses followed by roundtable discussions. The panelists included Dawn Savage, senior director with ICF, a global consulting firm in Sacramento, California; Kenny Diehl, senior principal with Smith Seckman Reid in Nashville, Tennessee; and Mark Pierce, founder and principal of E5 Leadership Academy in Cleveland, Ohio.
Senior Project Manager Matt Benovic traveled to Reston, Virginia for the American Society of Civil Engineer’s (ASCE) 2017 Presidents and Governors Forum (PGF) for Sections and Branches. Matt serves as President of ASCE Cleveland Section and joined with nearly 100 other society leaders to take part in workshops and presentations on chapter leadership. Matt was then on the road again to attend the ASCE National Convention in New Orleans. This year’s program featured numerous speakers, sessions, and networking opportunities focused on topics such as the state of the industry and profession; multi-disciplinary technical issues; natural and man-made disasters; strategic issues and public policy; as well as history and heritage of civil engineering.
