Lower Hudson Valley Engineer/Attorney Holiday Event Print E-mail
Lower Hudson Valley Branch
On December 8, 2015, the Lower Hudson Valley Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the White Plains Bar Association (WPBA) held a combined holiday celebration and networking event at the Westchester Hills Golf Club in White Plains, NY. The event featured practicing and professional civil engineers alongside attorneys and judges from the Lower Hudson Valley area. Kicking off the holiday season in festive fashion, the night began with an open-bar social hour followed by a full dinner buffet.

The dinner celebration was the first joint event held by the two associations and was coordinated in an effort to encourage networking between professions. Despite busy holiday schedules, the event posted a respectable turnout with 16 engineers, 25 attorneys and 20 judges in attendance. Throughout the evening partygoers intermingled telling jokes and sharing interesting stories. Considered a hit, it is likely that the Lower Hudson Valley Branch and the WPBA will meet again for future networking affairs.

Our goal was to contribute to a charitable organization this holiday season and try to bring a little joy to the children and families going through hard times.
