Committee chair, Melanie Fiegen, moved to South Dakota at the end of the year. If anyone is interested in chairing this committee, please contact Lisa Breu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The committee’s mission is to understand and communicate to the section our civil engineering heritage and history. Past activities have been articles for the newsletter, preparation of ASCE Historic Landmark designation applications, and calendars highlighting Minnesota Historic Projects.
