Are you wondering what to do this Thursday???
It’s not too late to register for the upcoming October luncheon this Thursday (10/20/16, 12pm, Canyon Creek Country Club) where we are excited to have Chad Jackson from KDC talk about their City Line (Richardson) and Legacy West (Plano) developments.
What a great meeting! Our State Director, Jeff Frison, provided an update on what NSPE & TSPE are doing in response to the EPA’s proposed rule regarding chemical facility safety and security measures. Just one example of how NSPE/TSPE are working hard behind the scenes in favor of public health, safety, and welfare.
TSPE Preston Trail September Luncheon – Cheers!
Our guest speaker, Jenna Covington (Asst. Deputy Director Wastewater, NTMWD), provided an overview of North Texas Municipal Water Districts partnership and collaboration with municipalities to ensure that our water/sewer infrastructure is safe and well-planned for continued future growth in the region. This as we celebrated “Imagine a Day Without Water”
We are truly fortunate to live in a part of the world where clean and safe water is readily available – this is not the case for 1.8 billion people around the world. How can we help? Water For People is a non-profit that works in 9 countries to battle this devastating issue. I encourage everyone to support this cause through donation and spreading awareness.
Next month we are excited to have Chad Jackson with KDC to discuss their developments of CityLine in Richardson and Legacy West in Plano! Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 20 and be on the lookout for registration emails.
Have a great weekend everyone!
It’s not too late to register for our upcoming September Luncheon which will be held on Thursday, September 15 with registration starting at 11:45 am.
Jenna Covington, PE (NTMWD)
We are excited to have Jenna Covington, PE of North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) discussing “Building a Better World Through Collaboration.”

The TSPE Preston Trail Chapter is excited to announce a reduced luncheon cost of $10 for all TxDOT employees – just one of the many benefits of being a TSPE TxDOT Affiliate Member!
Did you know that TxDOT employees are automatically TxDOT Affiliate Members of TSPE? Being such, they are able to serve on non-voting committee roles, are eligible for Engineer of the Year and Young Engineer of the Year, and pay a reduced cost for the annual TSPE conference. We are now excited to provide a reduced luncheon cost and encourage more attendance of TxDOT staff at our upcoming meetings.
Luncheon cost for members will remain at $20 with non-members paying $25.
We continue to try to provide the best value for both members and non-members to come out to our monthly luncheons.
A big thanks to everyone who attended our August luncheon this past Thursday where we had Lani Marshall, PE of TxDOT PEPS give a presentation on upcoming TxDOT procurements and common mistakes made for SOQ’s submitted.
We also had our State Director, Jeff Frison, PE, provide an update to attendee’s about NSPE’s on-going efforts to protect design professionals against limitless claims from contractors.
Are you interested in getting more involved in the Preston Trail Chapter? We have a couple committee positions available – please get in contact with one of our board members if you are interested.
