The Community Service Committee would like to thank everyone who “volunteered from home” with us during 2020! We collected 14 STEM activity kits for Illumination Foundation families, donated $390 to Ronald McDonald House, participated in the annual Coastal Cleanup 2020 version: Clean Up Your Happy Place, and collected and donated supplies for dozens of hygiene kits for SONRIE to distribute in Ojos Negros, Mexico!

Message to the Board’s License holders: As many of you know, in early 2020 the Board initiated the development of a new application/licensing system designed to facilitate the submittal of applications and management of license(s) through an online portal, known as BPELSG Connect. The first release resulting from this development launched in September 2020 with online Engineer-in-Training (EIT) and Land Surveyor-in-Training (LSIT) applications in addition to online complaint submittals.

To promote active transportation and healthy activities, the Sustainability Committee for ASCE-OC organized a bike ride activity on November 14th along the Santiago Creek Trail in Orange. One of the goals of the committee is to educate the engineering community about the many unique bikeway trails (Class I) in Orange County. The bike ride was approximately 9 miles; a round trip between Main Street and the Santiago Creek Recharge Basin.
