Welcome to the new ASCE-Pittsburgh News Blog-Rocks Roads Ripples n’At.
On September 4th, 2014, the ASCE-Pittsburgh Board of Directors voted to convert the monthly newsletter to a weekly blog format. This move is part of a continuing effort to make important information readily accessible, searchable, and interactive for current and future Pittsburgh Section ASCE members, public policy makers, news media, and advertisers.
Rocks Roads Ripples n’At will convey the usual newsletter information, as well as additional event photos and personal member profiles. The blog format will allow frequent updates on government relations, legislative developments, and other areas of interest to our members. The format encourages comments and discussion on new and archived articles.
Newsletters will continue to be printed until the end of December, 2014.
The transition from newsletter to blog format is expected to encounter some challenges. However, with patience and continued support from our members, we hope the new format will allow larger outreach to fellow engineers and interested followers.
We hope you enjoy the blog, and look forward to your discussions on future posts.
