We are very excited to bring you Mailer I for the Mid-Pacific Conference.
From the first day of planning, we have kept a focus toward sustainability, as well as economy. This balancing act not only affects us in the current lean economic environment, but will dominate our careers in the future. We have adopted "Lean and Green" as the theme of next years Conference to emphasize the importance of environmental stewardship, as well as providing cost-effective solutions. For our part, we have lowered the cost of next year's student registration from $50/student to $40/student. If we see an opportunity of making it cheaper for your Chapter to attend next year's Conference, we intend to pass the savings along to you.
The 2011 Mid-Pacific Planning Committee has already made giant leaps forward in planning an exciting competition next April. In addition to the traditional competitions of the Concrete Canoe, Mead Paper, Steel Bridge and Water Treatment, we are also providing two additional competitions. We have added the Geo-Challenge, as well as a Transportation Competition. We have also expanded the Conference to include an additional day to include tours of local Civil Engineering projects.
We are currently reviewing the rules that have been released, including the Concrete Canoe, Steel Bridge, and Geo-Challenge. The Water Treatment competition has yet to release the 2011 rules. We have been in contact with WEF, and have been assured we will receive the 2011 rules by Thanksgiving. We would like to ask you to review Mid-Pacific Student Conference's current Constitution that has been attached to the end of Mailer I. We wish to mediate any Constitutional amendments during the course of planning. The intention is to have a consensus on any modifications before the business meeting, allowing us to speed the ratification process.

Hope to see you in April!
