Assistant Chief of the Army Reserve Talks About Engineering Capabilities

Sisson.jpgLast week, Ms. Sisson, the Assistant Chief of the Army Reserve was in Washington, DC to be the keynote speaker at the National Society of Professional Engineer’s (NSPE) Annual Meeting.

NSPE is the organization of licensed Professional Engineers (PEs) and Engineer Interns (EIs). The organization promotes ethical and professional engineering practice through education, licensure advocacy, leadership training, multi-disciplinary networking, and outreach. By participating in the annual meeting, Ms. Sisson was able to speak with mid-level and senior level professional engineers from across the country.
During her presentation, Ms. Sisson discussed the various engineering career fields available to Army Reserve Soldiers. She also introduced attendees to the Army Reserve’s Public Private Initiative and the importance of civilian-acquired skills to Soldiers and the Army Reserve as a whole.
"We have many engineer career fields. We do more than just construct buildings, dams & levees!" Ms. Sisson said.
In addition to highlighting the Army Reserve’s engineering capabilities, Ms. Sisson also discussed the role of mentoring. She highlighted the importance of individual mentoring relationships and the fact that these relationships “make Soldiers better Soldiers, leaders, people & citizens.”
