ESWP Women’s Roundtable Luncheon

ESWP was honored to host Arletta Scott-Williams, Executive Director of ALCOSAN, at our May 22 Women’s Roundtable Luncheon, attended by 80 guests. ESWP Board Member Tanya McCoy Caretti (ARCADIS) served as Master of Ceremonies for the interview, which was very lively and informative, as well as entertaining! The gathering learned so much about Ms. Scott-Williams education and career path as well as family and life interests beyond ALCOSAN. Big thanks to both Arletta and Tanya for participating! If you have suggestions for future guests at ESWP’s Women’s Roundtable, please contact us!

President’s Reception Highlights…….

Great turnout last night at the ESWP President’s Reception, in honor of incoming President Robert J. Ward, P.E. (CannonDesign) and the entire Board of Directors. Guests were treated to a sumptuous buffet filled with delicious items from Chef Kevin. Everyone at the gathering enjoyed great networking as well – it really has the feel of a homecoming – it seemed that no one wanted the evening to end!

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!

Welcome to the new ESWP website!

We have been hard at work over the last several months redesigning a site that is dynamic, modern and scalable to fit all of your devices, including handhelds and portables. Please spend some time browsing our new layout and let us know what you like and where we may still need to make improvements.  One thing we learned for sure through this conversion: we have an extensive website filled with a lot of information that serves a variety of stakeholders.  Like all active websites, we will continue to work on improvements as we move forward.  In the meantime, enjoy the newly designed ESWP website and please share your feedback with us!
