Where: Mirabella Seattle, 116 Fairview Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109 Map
Topic: Kitsap Transit Recent Developments
Director of Marine Services for Kitsap Transit, Darrell E. Bryan, will give an overview of Kitsap Transit, recent developments regarding passenger-only ferries, and plans for future.

Speaker: Darrell E. Bryan (Kitsap Transit)
After 15 years serving on the Board of Interferry, the worldwide voice of the ferry industry, Darrell Bryan was appointed their CEO in 2016. Bryan is a subject matter expert in the maritime industry and is sought out as a consultant to assist businesses with special needs. Bryan currently sits on the Board of Visit Seattle and Un-Cruise Adventures, and is President of the Seattle Historic Waterfront Association.
Darrell Bryan was a leader in the start-up of Clipper Navigation, Inc. and led the company as its President and CEO for 29 years. Victoria Clipper started as a passenger-only ferry operator providing service between Victoria and Seattle, expanding seasonal service to the San Juan Islands. Bryan grew the company into Clipper Vacations, a full service international travel business providing tour and hotel package sales and special destination excursions in the Pacific Northwest. For the company to continue to thrive, Bryan was heavily involved in regional, national and international regulatory issues that affected the tourism and maritime industries.
No other company had been able to operate ferry service to Canada without government subsidy, and the Clipper has served more than eight million customers since its inception in 1986.

Rebuilding Together Volunteer Event

When: Saturday, April 28
ASCE is once again sponsoring a volunteer team this year for Rebuilding Together Seattle's Spring Rebuilding Day, and we invite all of you to help out if you are available and interested. Rebuilding Together Seattle is a non-profit that coordinates volunteers to rehabilitate homes for low income residents who are unable to perform these necessary repairs themselves. New affordable housing is costly compared to rehabilitation and repair. Even with the Seattle Housing Levy providing additional financing, 1 new unit of affordable housing in Seattle costs on average $268,605 to build.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 28th from 8 to 4. Breakfast, lunch, and drinks will be provided, along with tools for the project, although we encourage everyone to bring their own tools, gloves, and eye protection.

If interested in volunteering, please contact Megan Ramsay.

ASCE Legislative Committee - Volunteers Needed

Volunteer Needs

ASCE Seattle Section is searching for volunteers to assist with the Legislative Affairs Committee. The level of Involvement can vary and and can include providing engineering judgement on current legislative issues to assisting with lobbying.

The new Committee Chairperson is Savannah Linders and the new State Advocacy Captain is Dr. Conrad Felice.

Below is a description of the work that the Legislative Committee participates in.

The Legislative Committee functions in the political arena. The committee can become active in federal, state, county or other governmental issues that are of interest to the profession (such as university engineering budget considerations, issues that affect the practice of or employment of civil engineers, and environmental issues of significance to the profession). The committee is responsible for disseminating information from the AELC pertaining to state legislation. In recent years, the chair of the Legislative Committee has also been the AELC representative. If they are different, the Legislative Committee chair is an alternate to the AELC and shall be responsible for keeping abreast of current activities of the AELC.

The committee reviews proposed legislation and comments on it with regards to its effect on the civil engineering profession. The committee may request the Board take an official stance on certain legislation that is being proposed as appropriate. The committee and its members may also be called upon to testify at Legislative hearings or for other governmental committees (it must be noted that if such testimony is not previously approved by the Board or general membership, such testimony cannot represent the official position of the Seattle Section and is as an individual). The committee should work toward establishing a key contact group of members of the Society who have contacts with elected officials and who would be available to communicate the position of the Section. The committee is generally active prior to and during the sessions of the state legislature. The committee at times seeks the advice of other Section committees that may be more versed on a particular legislation topic. The committee typically sends at least one representative to the Society's annual Legislative Fly-In in Washington D.C.
