2007 Critical Issues Seminar

On March 14, 2007, the YMF and Engineers Club of Philadelphia co-sponsored the annual Critical Issues Seminar at the Elephant & Castle Pub. This year's topic was "Politics in Engineering and featured a distinguished panel of four local/regional/national engineers. The event was attended by approximately 30 people and it appeared that everyone found the discussion to be very informative regarding the influences and practices of engineers within the political arena as well as practical advice about how to help bring about changes. The event was setup by Chris Shaeffer and Dave Petrucci, the Professional Development Chairs. Additional information regarding this event, including a recap of the event can be viewed on the event recap and information flier and the original event flier can be found here. Additionally, please view the recommendations from ASCE regarding influencing public policy and get involved!
