Definitely made! On October 15th, ASCE-PGH is proud to host the Dale Carnegie Leadership training.  It is specifically designed for new managers or those who will soon be a manager. They will learn how to develop high performance teams that get more efficiency and effectiveness by becoming better leaders.  The training is interactive and engaging. It includes both lectures and group activities.  More information and registration can be found at

Most graduates of Dale Carnegie leadership training believe that this training was a life changing event.  Dale Carnegie training ignites workplace enthusiasm by developing employees into more confident, empowered, inspired, and enthusiastic individuals.  Dale Carnegie research indicates that employee engagement can unlock an organizations full potential.  Learn more at

Dale Carnegie Training is generally expensive and extensive.  Many small businesses cannot afford to offer this training in-house.  Dale Carnegie is offering a condensed version of their leadership training to Pittsburgh Section members at a significant discount.  This training is an 8-hour “Step Up to Leadership” module which would normally cost around $600 per person.  ASCE-Pittsburgh is offering it at $200 for members and $400 for non-members on a first-come basis (60 attendees maximum).  Breakfast, lunch, and parking is included.

The training will be held at Regional Learning Alliance (RLA), a non-profit organization with a beautiful campus with state-of-the-art and well equipped learning facility minutes from Pittsburgh.

Registration deadline is September 29, 2015.  At this time, we have low registration, and need your help to prevent cancellation of this section-subsidized training by encouraging your organization to register 5 or to sponsor the event.
