THE EVIDENCE AT GROUND ZERO
For months after Sept. 11, media speculation was that melting
steel caused the Twin Towers to collapse. But the word from
Dr. Venkatesh Kodur, P.Eng., of the National Research Council,
is that temperatures weren't high enough for that to happen.
The structural engineer and sole non-American on a team of
experts charged with determining the true cause tells crowds
in Edmonton and Calgary what really happened after two terrorist-piloted
jet airliners struck the World Trade Centre.
LIAISON PROGRAM GENERATES FEEDBACK
APEGGA has messages about licensure, volunteering, professionalism,
member services and many more areas that it needs to communicate.
But communication shouldn't be a one-way street, says Ross
Plecash, P.Eng., APEGGA's assistant director of Communications
and Public Relations. That's the rationale behind the new
Member Liaison Program - getting the messages out, and hearing
what members have to say.

E-MAIL ADDRESS WILL HELP US DO OUR JOB
Information technology and APEGGA's membership go hand in
hand. Why is it, then, that less than 50 per cent of members
have provided the Association with their e-mail address? APEGGA
would like to see that percentage increase dramatically, says
Executive Director Neil Windsor, P.Eng.
