Mid-year Meeting Survey

ASC Member School Faculty and Industry Partners,

It has been some time since we reached out to you from Region 1.  We hope your 2023 is going well through this point.  I am reaching out to you as we need to plan for our upcoming mid-year meeting.

This year’s mid-year meeting will be held at Norwich University, hosted by Dr. Nadia Al-Aubaidy.  The precise date of the meeting was left as TBD at the Annual Meeting that occurred in Albany in November 2022.  To that end, this survey will help determine the date of the Mid-Year meeting and any open agenda items:

Invited/welcomed attendees to this meeting are:  a) any faculty of any ASC member school, b) representatives of the judging firms for the 2023 competition (Skanska [Design-Build], Whiting-Turner [Comm. Const.], Consigli [Pre-con], Flatiron [Heavy-Civil], Baker Concrete [Open Concrete Solutions]), c) the industry liaison, and d) the competition coordinator (vacant).

The meeting will be on a date of least conflict for those that wish to travel to be in-person (preferred) during May or June of 2023.  The general schedule of the event will be:

  • First Day (optional): An Iraqi dinner at Dr. Al-Aubaidy’s home
  • Second Day: Meeting and Lunch at Norwich University

More details will follow once specific dates/times are selected.  A virtual meeting link will be provided for those that cannot travel to be in person, at a later date as well.

Thank you in advance for your filling out this survey by no later than 28 April:  We look forward to seeing many of you soon.
