Each year, the Affiliate Societies Council of Dayton recognizes outstanding engineers and scientists in the Miami Valley as part of the activities of Engineers and Scientists Week. These engineers and scientists are honored for important contributions to their professions at the Annual Awards Banquet. The Awards Committee receives nominations from Miami Valley companies, educational institutions, professional societies and individuals. Selections are made by the Awards Committee in cooperation with the member societies.

The 56th Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony was held in the Meyer Room at the University of Dayton's River Campus, 1700 Patterson Blvd. (map) on Thursday, April 16. The 2015 ASC Awardees are listed at the right. There was a reception followed by a talk by Mr. Eric Collings, Director, Community & Economic Development, Montgomery County followed by an invocation, banquet and the Awards Ceremony.

All were invited to Awards Banquet and Ceremony. Reservations were required by COB Monday, April 13, 2015. 

Donations to help cover the cost of meals for the awardees and spouses, award plaques, program printing, reception and other costs are greatly appreciated. ASC is a 501(c)(3) public charity and all programs are carried out by volunteers.
