53rd National Academy of Engineering Annual Meeting


Welcome to this year’s annual meeting of the National Academy of Engineering, and a special welcome to our new members and foreign members on your induction day. I hope last night’s dinner in the Great Hall was “one to remember” for you. That dinner experience remains permanently etched in my memory, which is one reason we do our best to create the magic of the evening for you. I also welcome our anniversary members, who received a personal invitation to this meeting on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of their election and every five-year interval thereafter. Your registration fee is waived, and your new class picture will verify for your admirers that you still pass for the 25-year-old surfer you once were. Spouses, families, and guests, you all are most welcome too and I do hope you enjoy the program and the opportunity to meet your friends from afar.
