ASCE Convention 2015
I had the great privilege of attending the ASCE Convention in New York, NY as the representative of the Arizona Section this year. To say the event was amazing is a bold understatement. I found inspiration from the first session of the first day, to the last conversation before the end of the program.
I was particularly inspired by the words of Luke Williams in the Plenary Session as he talked about the need for “disruptive change” in order to break the expectations and generate new solutions. His talk warned of the dangers of complacency, the challenges of traditional innovation, and the need for deliberate provocation.
