University of Missouri-Kansas City

The UMKC DBIA Student Chapter began its second year of operations in September 2012 with new officers and some new members as a result of graduations. During the fall semester, the chapter conducted activities in conjunction with the UMKC Student Council to raise awareness of its purpose and activities. Chapter officers and members attended some DBIA KC Chapter breakfast meetings at the Double Tree and other industry presentations conducted at UMKC as part of the Construction Management Certification Program.

The UMKC DBIA Student Chapter held a membership meeting in late November on campus to discuss the New Orleans experience with its members, and to plan for Spring 2013 semester activities which may include attendance at the DBIA Transportation / Water Conference in Orlando, FL in March 2013. The UMKC DBIA Student Chapter is soliciting industry sponsors to assist it with some of these special activities.
