September 2016 Chair Message

Dear members and friends of Section 1001-

Happy Labor Day weekend! I hope this message finds you well and ready to kick off the 2016-2017 Program year.

This month, we welcome back an old friend of the Section. Mark Rusco, Associate Professor at Ferris State University, will be speaking to us about Measurement Uncertainty and its impact on risk.  Mark’s presentations are always both informative and entertaining.  If you enjoy a technical topic injected with a liberal dose of humor, I highly recommend that you consider joining us at The Bluff on September 8th.

As always, please contact any member of the Section Leadership Committee if you have questions, concerns, suggestions, or feedback about past and future presentations.

I hope to see you at The Bluff on September 8th.

Thank you,


Andrea Ward

Chair, Grand Rapids Section
