President's Monthly Chapter Message

Dear Members and Friends,

Our February 12th meeting will be on an important topic for all of us who live in this area. We will have Dr. Ehab Meselhe of the Tulane River-Coastal Science and Engineering Department speak on how “River and Coastal Engineering Research at Tulane is helping the Louisiana Coast and the Mississippi River”. Dr. Meselhe is also a Professional Licensed Civil Engineer and a specialist in hydraulics, coastal and river computer modeling. This meeting will also be a joint meeting with the Society of Tulane Engineers (STE) and will be held at the Glazer Family Club- Tulane University Yulman Stadium on Ben Weiner Dr., between Freret St. and Claiborne Ave. There is free parking after 5:30 pm next to Yulman Stadium in the Diboll Garage. Please visit their web site at for more information on STE. Our past joint meetings this year were with the IEEE and AiChE and this will be our third joint event. I look forward to having more joint meetings like this with LES with other engineering societies. For more information on registration for this meeting, please click here .

The January 15, 2020 NO-LES meeting was our annual panel discussion with the topic being the ”Industrial and Business Outlook for 2020 and Beyond”, and was a luncheon at Andrea’s Italian Restaurant in Metairie and again we had a great turn out of nearly 50 members and friends. Our panel consisted of Mr. Phillip May, Entergy Louisiana President, Mr. Grady Fitzpatrick, Senior VP of GNO, Inc., and Mr. Peter D. Wood of Shell Oil Company. I was moderator this year. The panel covered several topics from industrial development to the overall business outlook for our region, state and the nation and even commented on workforce development and engineering education needs for industry. Unfortunately, Prof. Eric Smith of Tulane had a last minute conflict and could not participate, however our panel did an exceptional job and inspired some great discussion and answered some great questions.

If your company is still interested in the NO-LES Chapter Sponsorship Program for remainder of our 2019-2020 program term year, we have a half-price sponsorships available. Please see details here .
