A Message from ASCE Headquarters
On behalf of ASCE, I want to extend our concern for your well-being during these challenging times. The magnitude of the growing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has the United States and countries worldwide in unprecedented territory. Regardless, the health and safety of our members and staff is our highest priority.
We are closely monitoring the developing situation and following the recommendations of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health authorities. We urge you to heed any directives given by community leaders and take the necessary precautions to ensure your welfare and that of your loved ones.
For many professionals, these circumstances may be demanding and stressful. ASCE wants to help you to the extent we can. We have just launched a resource page collecting online tools and tips in one convenient place. The page links to the latest updates from the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) and to relevant, topical online discussions with fellow members. The page also offers several ways to work more effectively while at home and activities to take advantage of in the down time you may have – even fun things to do with the kids.
ASCE is surveying members to gauge how the pandemic is affecting your professional ability to get things done. In these times, understanding common experiences and the ways you are combatting operational disruptions can be essential to your future planning. Please take a few moments to complete this important survey by the end of Wednesday, March 18. We will share the results in Friday’s ASCE E-News.
If you have any questions or if ASCE can be of help to you, please do not hesitate to reach out. We hope you may find comfort and support from ASCE during these challenging times.
Best wishes to you and your loved ones for a healthy transition.
