2015-2016 Fourth General Meeting Recap

2015-2016 Fourth General Meeting Recap

This past Thursday, USC ASCE hosted a general meeting with a special guest: Alan Hanson from Simpson Strong Tie! Alan gave us a brief history and background of the company, and also discussed various scholarship opportunities for juniors and seniors. We're looking forward to the upcoming tour of Simpson Strong Tie!

After the presentation, we held officer elections for four executive board positions for next year: president, vice president, treasurer, and one of the sponsorship/conference co-chairs. The members in attendance were able to hear a bit from each candidate, and voting commenced. It was really great to hear everyone's plans for next year, and so far, it looks like we're going to have a really awesome executive board!

The meeting then closed out with an exciting game of Jeopardy! Members were split into three teams: the cows, ducks, and dogs (with buzzer sounds of moos, quacks, and woofs, respectively), and answered questions about USC, ASCE, Simpson Strong Tie, Engineering, and Construction. The game was extremely close, but the cows ended up winning it all with a risky wager in Final Jeopardy. All in all, it was a really informative and fun meeting, that hopefully gave everyone a little bit of a break as we gear up for PSWC!
