APWA City Branch
January PDH Luncheon

Future of Chicago Union Station
Erik Cempel
Amtrak Infrastructure Planning Manager
at Chicago Union Station
Thursday, January 24, 2019
Banquet Entrance
50 W. Randolph
Chicago, IL 60601
11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

ISPE Members are invited to join APWA at their monthly PDH luncheon.   
Attendees are eligible to receive 1.0 PDH Credit for attending.
Amtrak's Chicago Union Station (CUS) is the nation's 3rd busiest rail station, and the busiest in Chicago.  In 2012, the City of Chicago completed a CUS master plan which identified 14 specific improvements to improve circulation and safety, increase train and passenger capacity, enhance customer experience, and improve intermodal connectivity.  These were further advanced to preliminary design, and now Amtrak and its partners are currently looking for opportunities to move individual projects to full design and eventually construction.
Amtrak has also initiated a Master Development Program at its major stations to attract world-class developers, investors, architects and engineers to maximize the value of Amtrak's portfolio of real estate assets at and around its largest stations.  CUS is the first of our stations to embark on this public-private partnership.
The presentation will summarize both of these immense undertakings.

About Chicago Chapter

The Chicago Chapter of the Illinois Society of Professional Engineers (ISPE) is a professional association representing the interests of engineers in Chicago from all fields of practice. ISPE is a state society member of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). ISPE consists of licensed professional engineers, licensed structural engineers, licensed land surveyors, engineer interns, graduate engineers, and engineering students. NSPE, ISPE, and the Chicago Chapter all work to promote the engineering profession at the national, state, and local levels. Because of our diverse membership we often seek to collaborate with other organizations to serve our common member base and increase networking opportunities.

The Chicago Chapter aims to provide quality professional development and network building events in the greater Chicago area. Many events are over the lunch hour or immediately after work hours, focusing on a variety of engineering related topics and frequently offering professional development hours (PDH).

The Chapter also supports the Chicago Region MATHCOUNTS competition, provides scholarships to engineering college students, and distributes awards to local engineering firms for significant project achievements.
