EPN's 2nd Tuesdays Breakfast Club

Nov 20, 2013, 12:00pm - 1:15pm


EPN's 2nd Tuesday Breakfast Club switches to a Wednesday luncheon for a joint program with the Columbus Metropolitan Club on Infrastructure in Decline, So Goes the Nation?

Our nation’s infrastructure - bridges, roads, dams, waterways, pipelines and power grids - propels our economy and protects our environment. But the American Society of Civil Engineers, in its 16-category grade card, glaringly points out that we are not keeping pace. We'll discuss the ramifications and potential tonics for a crumbling infrastructure. Featuring Brian Pallasch, Managing Director, Government Relations and Infrastructure Initiatives, ASCE,(Washington, D.C.); Greg Murphy, Assistant Director and Chief of Staff, Ohio Department of Transportation; and moderator, William Murdock, Executive Director, Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission.

Regristration available from the EPN website. The luncheon begins at 12:00 p.m. at the Athletic Club of Columbus, 136 E. Broad St.
