Networking Events

Join your colleagues at various networking events during the conference.

Saturday, May 18

Volunteering Opportunity

Looking for a way to give back to the city before the conference starts?

What: Join IISE SDD and use your ISE skills to support the Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County. Habitat Orlando & Osceola is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.

Because of the nature of what HFH does (constructing homes), it is nearly impossible for us to know what tasks our group will be doing on the build day; we will be completing tasks associated with homebuilding: painting, hammering, caulking, etc. 

As we typically do each year at these events, we will gather as a group (or groups) following the work to debrief as a team.  During this debrief we typically put on our Industrial Engineer hats and develop a list of recommendations for improvement for the non-profit. 

Who: IISE conference attendees and guests

Why: Use your ISE skills for a good cause while networking with fellow conference attendees

Where: Silver Pines site located at 5534 Glen Lake Lane in Orlando, Fla.

When: Saturday, May 18, Depart from Rosen Shingle Creek Resort by bus at 8 a.m., 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. volunteer shift, and optional lunch after.
