|LES Baton Rouge Chapter Members,
I hope everyone has been staying safe
and healthy during this COVID pandemic. It has been since
February from our last event during E-Week and we are missing
our chapter members and look forward to getting together
again soon. This has been some unchartered waters for all
and we have been assessing the situation and how it affects
our LES Baton Rouge Chapter with upcoming chapter events,
2020-2021 board nominations, and our corporate sponsorships.
Due to the current situation associated with quarantine
and social distancing, the LES Baton Rouge Chapter has had
to reschedule, modify, and/or cancel some events. Below
is an update as our current plan for our members.
· The LES Baton Rouge Golf
Tournament has been cancelled for the April event. The Chapter
is looking to reschedule this Golf Tournament in the fall.
We will keep you posted on the rescheduled date. If you
have already registered for this event and need to be refunded
or defer registration cost to the next event, please let
· Our Annual LES Crawfish Boil
is typically scheduled for April. Due to the Stay
at Home order and the phased approach to reopening
the economy, the LES Board will cancel the crawfish boil
for 2020 and will resume with it is 2021. In an attempt
to still get our members together and to provide a free
ethics session to our members, our board is looking into
alternatives that may include either an online ethics webinar
or possibly substituting with a fall LSU Tailgate Party.
· Our Young Member Social for
May will be postponed. Our board will look to host a joint
social with partnering organizations for either June or
July if possible.
· The LES / ASCE Joint Luncheon
is scheduled for May 28th. Pending the Governors roll
out plan, the LES Board is looking at either a 100% online
luncheon or a possibility of a limited seating luncheon
with combination of an online webinar. More to come on this
in the next week or two.
2020-2021 Board Nominations
· The LES Board is looking
for nominations for our upcoming 2020-2021 fiscal year.
If you are interested in participating on the board, please
email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We
will add you to the ballot which will be sent out to members

We want to thank our Corporate Sponsors
for the continued support of our organization. As we close
out the 2019-2020 year, the board will be looking for sponsors
for the upcoming year to help continue with the events.
Due to some of the impediments of COVID with our recent
events, the LES Board is looking to all of our current corporate
sponsors with a discounted sponsorship package. During these
trying times, we all need to work together to help support
and protect our engineering profession and we cannot do
it without our sponsors! Thank you!
If you need anything from LES during
this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to either
myself or any board member for assistance. In the meantime,
please stay safe, healthy and focus forward as we all continue
working through this time.
