Hello MAC-IECA Members (and non-members)! Thanks for stopping by the MAC-IECA wesbite! We have many wonderful events planned for 2018 and I hope to see you all at one or more of them. Let’s take a look at what our Chapter has in store for you this year.
Our 25th Annual Conference and Trade Exposition will be held in Camp Hill, PA on September 18th-20th at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg. This is our 25th Annual Conference, our quarter-centennial, so it is sure to be a huge event of not only education and networking, but reflection and how far we have come. Our conference is focused around higher education and the youth of our industry this year. We have offered all students and professors a free registration for day one of the confernece to show them the value that IECA can be to them and how it can lead to job opportunities. If you want to sponsor students for the conference you may donate to the student fund during registration. The infamous MAC IECA 2018 Annual Golf Tournament will be held at Dauphin Highlands (650 S Harrisburg Street, Harrisburg, PA, 17113). This year’s tournament will commence on Tuesday, September 18th at 10:00 am set as the first tee time. From a challenging par 3 of 172 yards to a wide-open par 5 of 541-yards, Dauphin Highlands provides the opportunity for you to experience every facet of the intricate game of golf. This is always a great way to kick off the conference for attendees, board members and exhibitors. Head on over to our Conference Page for up-to-date info on the event.
The MAC yet again hosted an IECA Roadshow event and this year it was held in Dover, DE. The Delaware Roadshow provided inforomation on Coastal Resiliency Planning, Responses to Sea Level Rise and Shoreline Protections. Check out the IECA Facebook Page’s Photo Recap of the event.
In February 2018, IECA and the MAC converged on Long Beach, CA. for the IECA Annual Conference. The MAC took home two Chapter awards from IECA Region 1, Outstanding Professional Development and the Rick Granard Award of Distinction (the most prestigious of all Chapter awards)! What an honor it was to recieve these awards on behalf of our Chapter. We couldn’t have done it without you all so thank you! The MAC Chapter Meeting was a success with lively discussion, networking and a real sense of regional community. Long Beach was definitely one IECA Annual Conference I will not soon forget.
Our chapter is always growing, evolving and expanding. We look forward to improving the experience of all of our members and making the MAC the largest and most rewarding chapter in IECA. As always if you have any feedback that you would like to share with either myself or the Board of Directors please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We here at the MAC hope to see you all very soon. Thank you all for your support of this fine organization and I thank you all who came out to one of our many events! Have a wonderful holiday season. Cheers!
