On February 2nd the Southwest Branch hosted a social at the Wisconsin Brewing Company! Members were able to network and socialize with one another while enjoying Wisconsin Brewing Company drinks as well as pizza provided by the chapter. Members were also able to tour the brewery! We had over 25 members attend!
On February 4th our younger members volunteered at the annual MathCounts competition held in Madison. Our members helped set up and grade the math problems given to the students. Above is a picture of several of our board and younger members at the event! For more information on the MathCounts click here.

This past weekend, Harry Tran (President-Elect) and Terry Armstrong (Younger Member Chair) represented the Southwest branch at the Multi-Region Leadership Conference in Minneapolis. The conference included leadership classes that provided key tools to running a chapter of ASCE. Both board members were able to collaborate with others within the regions 3, 6, and 7 on how to better our sections, branches, and chapters.
Harry and Terry also attended the ASCE MRLC awards dinner where they had the opportunity to preview the upcoming IMAX film “Dream Big.” This film is something ASCE on a national level has developed in hopes to inspire the children of today about the importance of engineers.
