The current ASIE President Vishal Merchant warmly welcomed all attendees and particularly appreciated the presence of non-member guests. In his opening remarks, he briefly mentioned about ASIE activities. “The vision of ASIE is to expand and provide benefits of the experienced and well established present generation to the new, young and dynamic generation of the future by supporting initiatives in engineering and architecture, including Science Fair, Mathcounts, and E-Week programs. Every year, ASIE presents awards for the Science and Engineering Fair and offers scholarships to students pursuing engineering degrees from public universities in the Houston area.” He added, “Thus a solid foundation has been laid for the future, and now ASIE has decided to take the organization to the next level and focusing on Building the Future together with the younger generation.” He humbly requested and encouraged more than forty non- members to support ASIE by joining the organization.

After the delicious dinner served by Sankalp, Craig Woodard with RamJack, made the video presentation for “Foundation Solution”. Dinesh Shah, who helped to put together the event, presented the Certificate of Appreciation to the speaker. Shah, a Board of Advisor of ASIE, during the networking expressed his views individually to the non-members and said that “my goal is to take ASIE to the next level, similar to the level of progress and strength of Medical Professionals in AAPI organization. All around the world and here in USA, Indo-American Engineers in all disciplines play a very important role. Just to name a few examples that they perform design and build amazing skyscrapers, deep seawater offshore drilling, nuclear power plants and many more mind boggling designs, but unfortunately not recognized or appreciated to the highest extent. I am serving to promote activities of ASIE, encourage all Indo-American Engineers, Architects, Designers and engineering technicians to join ASIE for creating our strength, to help build the future of next generation professionals, and ultimately get united and act with one voice.”

At the end, the raffle for five lucky winners was drawn. The major prize was donated by Sankalp Restaurant and other token prizes were given by AISE. The event was concluded with Vote of Thanks by ASIE Treasurer, Karthik Balasubramanian. All attendees were given a PDH certificate towards their continuing education credit.
