Welcome to our new newsletter! It has been a long time in the making but we are hoping this new platform provides a better reading experience for our members. The new format will reduce our costs which will allow us to do more for the engineering community and scholarships. The newsletter will be equipped with active links and looks just as great on your mobile device or tablet. We will constantly try to expand our newsletter content, so if you have an idea about an article please let us know. If you normally receive a hard copy newsletter and still would like to receive one please, fill out the form on page 18 and we will make sure to get you a hard copy.

We have also expanded the content for the sponsor of the month. As you can see, the sponsor now has a one page sponsor page, the banner link to their website and a cover photo from one of the projects that they would like to highlight. We hope that companies will continue to sponsor our newsletter which allows us to continue programming for our membership and also build our scholarship fund. As a reminder the cost for is our sponsorship is $250 please contact myself or someone from the board if you are interested.

However with all the good news also comes some bad news. Fran Weaver has decided to resign her position as newsletter editor and pursue other ventures. Fran has been the ASCE-NH editor for over five years and has been instrumental in developing the newsletter content and format throughout the years. She has raised the bar and we hope we can continue in her work. (continued on page 4)
