Afternoon everyone and hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. I am trying to get a feeling for the bidding schedule nationwide. Has bidding slowed down in your regions or stopped all together. Has bidding opened back up in your regions?

Weekly NE Regional Governor's call, Tuesdays 4 - 5 pm EST

Posted By Greg Williamson, Wednesday, May 20, 2020
Good to see a number of you on the weekly Governor's call yesterday and good to see the momentum that’s building with Chapters. For new members, i suggest aligning yourself with the leadership of the chapter and willingness to get involved. I would encourage you to challenge some new members and their energy to taking some initiatives to voice what they want and expect out of chapter membership to make it happen for themselves and others and to get involved in the planning and committee work. With the virtual connections, I think it’s easier to plan for small events or discussions and then broadcast to all and see who shows up. We are getting traction again in Boston with new leadership and happy to share what works or drop in yourself or encourage other chapter members to observe our meetings. My thoughts are that we are all National members first, and then local chapter members in our circles of influence.

Encourage the social link apps to stay connected and encourage members to post pictures and comments. One of our initiatives is to reach out to faculty in construction management programs and get professors to join the society – you could even look for sponsors in industry of their memberships.

I can understand the frustration of new members and lack of direction or engagement. We are all learning and perhaps starting a mentoring or sponsor program for alignment of new members is a great thing to organize and reason to reach out to established members and connect. I’ve often said that getting the most out of membership is getting involved; it is not a gumball machine to drop in your dues and expect what you get. Time and time again, those that get the most out of ASPE are those that invest in their profession and pay it forward for our industry.

One thing we have learned is that it's easy to drop in on a virtual event and connect with others, so whatever you're organizing, please share with everyone that may want to drop in and connect

Happy to share. Contact me anytime. Stay safe. cheers

Good Morning, I am interested in writing an article for the Estimating Today. Instead of coming up with a topic that I think is interesting I would like to ask my fellow members what they think would be a solid topic that would garner some interest. Please post all ideas in this blog. Thanks in advance TR

Work Remotely.....

I am a firm believer that most estimators can work remotely.

How can you convince a new employer to allow you to work remotely?

What are the cost savings to the employer?

Do statistics show increased productivity?

Looking forward to some input from the group.

Building Enclosure

The Importance of Wall to Roof Connections for the Air Barrier
June 2, 2020 | 2 PM EDT
*BNP Media is authorized by the IACET to offer 0.1 CEU for this program
Free Webinar
When it comes to connecting wall air barrier assemblies to other building assemblies, the most often missed or poorly executed detail is the connection between the wall air barrier and roof assembly.

This presentationwill focus on the following items to consider from a design standpoint, along with practical approaches to ensuring a robust connection is constructed and executed.
  1. Describe why the roof/wall air barrier intersection is critical to building performance in regards to moisture management and air leakage control and common design and field errors.
  2. Discuss compatibility issues related to wall and roof air barrier components for the myriad of air barrier and roofing assemblies that exist on the market today.
  3. Identify pre-construction coordination items to review and allocation of responsibilities to sub-trades for proper execution of connection.
  4. Review requirements for detailing the roof/wall interface and the sequence of construction for most common roof/wall air barrier connections.

I am in the process of reaching out to several institutions to recruit student members as well as faculty members. The response I have received have been positive. Most of the universities have advisory boards and they were optimistic that an affiliation with the ASPE could provide future board members. I suggest that members reach out to their local universities, colleges, technical institutions and trade schools to spread the word about the ASPE.
