    President's Message

    As we start the Calusa Chapter 2018-19 year, I think back to summer break and hope everyone had a great and safe summer.  Looking forward, we have many great events planned!  Some of which you will be able to obtain needed professional development hours as we have the PE renewal coming up in 2019.

    Our upcoming meeting on Rise of the Drones will be hosted by Michael Corso from Henderson Franklin and qualifies for 1 pdh.

    Keep an eye out for upcoming meetings such as the Joint Meeting with the Student Chapter from FGCU in October, the Panther Island Mitigation Bank outing in November, and a joint mixer with ASCE in December.

    Check out our website,, or our Facebook page, @FESCalusa, for upcoming meetings, events, job postings, member updates, etc.  Should you or your firm have any pictures, job postings, community events, etc. feel free to tag us or email to

    We look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming mixer and throughout the year!
