Dear friends and colleagues of the Golden Gate Section,
Just one month into the new SPE year and we’re off to an energetic and engaging start!
I want to start this note with a piece of great news: our Golden Gate Section has been selected to receive the 2021 Regional Section Recognition award! On behalf of the board of directors, I want to thank you for your support and participation through a particularly challenging 18 months. As you all know, in spite of the pandemic, our section remained strong and engaged. We quickly adapted to a virtual format and have seen an increasing number of attendees at monthly meetings. At our September meeting, we even reached record-high attendance!
Continuing with the great news, we have been fortunate to secure a list of distinguished speakers who will cover a diverse range of topics at our chapter meetings this year. The full list can be found here. It is also worth mentioning that we will kick off our Data Science and Engineering Analytics (DSEA) initiatives this month with a special talk Please reach out to us if you would like to join the DSEA initiatives or have any suggestions.
While many activities are back to normal, we continue to navigate through unprecedented times and changing safety guidelines. Our meetings will remain virtual throughout the end of 2021 and we’ll provide additional updates as we have them for 2022. I look forward to seeing you all at our monthly meetings and would love to invite you to join a few minutes early to socialize with speakers and your fellow section members.
Thank you and see you in our next meeting!
