November NJSPE Update
Offering 2 PDH credits for NJ Professional Engineers and PE’s in other states that accept NJSPE accredited programs.

10AM - 12 NOON

NJ Green Infrastructure Stormwater Rules
Speaker: Jeromie P. Lange, PE, PP, CME, CFM;
Active Acquisitions and Maser Consulting, Inc.
Accreditation: 2 NJ PDH credits

Presentation to the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers
This course will review the recently adopted NJ Stormwater Management Rules that will become effective on March 2, 2021. The discussion will focus on the design paradigm shift necessary to successfully and efficiently implement green infrastructure including design team approaches to effectively utilize green infrastructure in stormwater management. The concept of decentralization and utilizing the required tiers of BMPs to accomplish stormwater management in a treatment train will be explained, including examples. The benefits of using green infrastructure from both a stormwater management and development standpoint will be explained. Guidance will be provided on how to “count” infiltration in the design, focusing on the advantages and potential pitfalls. The need for and approach to groundwater mounding analysis that must be performed when counting infiltration will be reviewed. Similarly, the necessary geotechnical exploration to support the successful implementation of green infrastructure with regard to permeability testing and groundwater mounding modeling criteria will be reviewed. Tips to maximize the benefit of green infrastructure, such as how to leverage decentralization of stormwater mitigation, the benefits of involving multiple professions in the consideration of project stormwater management from the concept stage as opposed to an afterthought, and how to reduce the land area required for end of pipe BMPs, potentially increasing the project yield by both utilizing all of the “left over” areas on the site and fully counting all of the decentralized green infrastructure will also be provided. A guided, interactive discussion on approaches to utilizing green infrastructure in “challenging” applications will be included.

REGISTRATION INCLUDES: Zoom Webinar with moderator. Participants will be sent the webinar link several days before so they can log on and be sure they are compatible.

Big news from MATHCOUNTS!! 
Do you know a 6, 7 or 8th grader who loves math or possibly needs to improve his or her math skills? Maybe MATHCOUNTS is the answer. MATHCOUNTS has a free National Math Club that give students an opportunity to play fun math games in a non-competitive social environment. MATHCOUNTS also has a nationwide competition series. All of the competitions through the State level will be online for the 2020-2021 year. This and other changes will expand access to a larger group of potential participants.  
Who can register? Any type of school, of any size, can register—public, private, religious, charter, virtual or home school can register up to 15 students (up from the traditional 10 students). If a mathlete’s school is not planning to register, an individual can register as a non-school competitor. To also expand the fun, four practice competitions and an additional competition level have been added this year.  
Registered schools and non-school competitors will have access to the 4 practice competitions on October 15, November 15, December 15 and January 22.  
Chapter Competition will be from 1pm (EST) February 5 through 1pm (EST) February 6 
Chapter Invitational Competition will be held at 7pm (EST) on February 25 
State Competition will be held at 7pm (EST) on March 25

Student Freedom Initiative plans to make student loan debt a thing of the past for STEM students

With limited options, many students and their families have little choice but to turn to Parent PLUS loans and private loans that account for more than half of the debt incurred to attend historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). A recent donation to the Student Freedom Initiative plans to change all that, making the nonprofit a payment alternative to the current student loan structure.
