The Holiday Inn Select – 601 Main Street, Lynchburg, VA
Thursday, February 23, 2012, 5:30-9:00 PM
Come celebrate Engineer’s Week – A 60-year-old tradition marking the contributions engineers make to the quality of life in our communities.
Enjoy food, fellowship, and an intriguing presentation by Ross T. Thomas, an advisor during the initial months of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear crisis. Immediately following the earthquake and tsunami, Mr. Thomas worked with industry and government experts in Washington, D.C. He, subsequently, went to Japan to assist in response efforts and longer term planning. Mr. Thomas has taught engineering and physics at Penn State and VMI and served as head of the VMI Physics Department. He was one of only two U.S. senior industry advisors for the Department Of Energy on the Generation IV International Forum for the development of advanced reactors. He recently retired from B&W where he held numerous positions including Vice President and Chief Technical Officer.
Our evening starts with a cash bar and social time from 5:30 to 6:30 PM, followed by dinner and program from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. Events include an awards ceremony for our local MATHCOUNTS© winners, keynote discussion and other special engineering presentations celebrating engineering achievements over the past year.
Registration for this event is $25.00 ($10.00 for student), which includes dinner, dessert, and coffee. Several levels of sponsorships are also being solicited to help defray meeting costs. (Please contact an event coordinator at left to contribute to sponsorships).
