The 2016 Multi-Region Leadership Conference for Regions 1, 2, 4 & 5 will be held in Pittsburgh, PA, February 12-13 at the Omni William Penn Hotel. The conference includes a Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders (WSBL), Eastern Region Younger Member Council (ERYMC), and the Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL).
Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders (WSBL)
ASCE authorizes Sections including the National Capital Section to nominate two delegates to attend the Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders. This Workshop is designed to strengthen and expand the programs and activities of Sections through the interchange of ideas, information and experiences. The program will also expose incoming officers to tools to help them be effective leaders. For additional information: http://www.asce.org/pittsburgh-workshop-for-student-chapter-leaders/
Eastern Region Younger Member Council (ERYMC)
125 Younger Member Groups are divided into three Younger Member Councils (Eastern, Central and Western), which provide volunteer leadership training and a link to the ASCE Committee on Younger Members (CYM) - the national committee voice for young professionals. ASCE provides reimbursement for the travel expenses, to cover lodging and meals for one delegate per Younger Member Group.

Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL)
The Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL) is a training session for new student officers in ASCE Student Chapters. It is sponsored by the Committee on Student Members - the national committee that oversees ASCE Student Organization activities. Faculty and Practitioner Advisors are also encouraged to attend. ASCE will reimburse up to $500/Student Chapter to help cover the costs of registration, travel and lodging: http://www.asce.org/pittsburgh-workshop-for-student-chapter-leaders/
I encourage the National Capital Section, our Younger Member Group, and each of our Student Chapters to participate in the 2016 MRLC which will be hosted by our Region 2. Please contact me if you have questions or comments. I hope to see many of you there!
