“That waiter looks a lot like the President”

That’s what we expect to hear on February 28 when ESWP President Dan Cessna of PennDOT takes to the floor of the ESWP Members Executive Dining Room, walking the walk that the ESWP is literally here to serve you! Dan, accompanied by fellow Board Member Michelle Antantis of Duquesne Light Company will be the celebrity waiters on that day. Save room on your lunch schedule now to be a part of the day.

Soft Skills Update!

Soft Skills continues to draw! ESWP Board member Amy Veltri (NGE) presented an interesting and informative talk on the “soft skills” that everyone can benefit from in today’s workplace. Amy’s best advice: “Be creative, ask for opportunities, listen to directions, and know expectations and exceed them!”

ESWP Young Member Forum highlights

Summer fun! The ESWP Young Member Forum combined forces with those of the ASCE, ASHE,  EWB, TBP and SAME in hosting a Summer Social on August 19. The event was held at the Pittsburgh Engineers’ Building and featured craft beers, and a special summer Sangria cooler, along with lots of great food. Each of the hosting groups provided a gift basket for door prize table, where attendees could try their luck at baskets of their choosing. Representatives from each of the hosting groups also previewed their upcoming continuing education activities.

Greater PGH Arts Council Tour

Tom Leech PHLF

ESWP sends a big thanks to member Tom Leech for volunteering to speak at the Sept 25 Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council walking tour, which hosted  many international visitors.

From the GPAC: “It was a tremendous success, and I think that we made a great connection with the Nepali and Bhutanese community. Your talk was outstanding, and I loved hearing how you described the bridge like a backbone; your enthusiasm for bridges and Pittsburgh history was clearly evident.”


Thank you Tom!
