Thank You Gannett Fleming

SEGS is very pleased to have received a $500 donation in December 2016 from Gannett Fleming, Inc., an American-based engineering firm specializing in international planning, design, and construction management, and employer of SEGS 2017 President Clint Noble and members Daniel Lapikas, Austin Dunlap, Fred Pirkle, and Chrystal Yates. The gracious donation is intended to enhance our ability to provide student grant awards, and our mission to provide inexpensive field trips to all members.


Are you interested in a trip to Cuba?

SEGS long-time member Sarah Whitaker, P.G., expressed interest in facilitating a field trip to Cuba in years past; she’s visited several times as a Canadian citizen. Now that borders are more open, and we learned that flights from Tampa and Orlando are under $200 round trip, some of us are enthusiastic about the adventure. Sarah reported that she is willing to help. Please let any field trip committee member know of your interest, and please – willingness to commit in advance, and help making the trip happen.


Thank You Members

Thank you to all of our members who have promptly paid their 2017 dues (98 members as of March 5, 2017); and thanks especially to members who volunteered to serve on one or more of our committees; enjoy!
