AV Winter Party

Ashley & Vance Engineering

What a treat it was to celebrate the beginning of 2017 with nearly our entire firm congregating on the central coast.  All sorts of activities went down--from a trail run in Montaña de Oro, to a surf session at Palisades, to mountain biking in the Irish Hills.  There was even a series of tournaments that included billiards, ping pong, & bowling.  All told between employees & family members, we had over eighty-five people in attendance from all seven of our offices, some of whom traveled more than 800 miles to partake in the festivities.  And for those who made the excursion from our northernmost offices, the sunny, 80-degree weather at the end of January made them only slightly envious.

After the slew of fun-filled adventures, we gathered together for a dinner party at Ventana Grill in Pismo Beach.  Besides enjoying the breathtaking views and delicious food & drink, we took some time to reflect on the growth we experienced in 2016, and our appreciation for the clients that continue to allow us to partner with them in solving fun and challenging problems.  We also paused to recognize all 17 of the new team members we brought on in 2016, and how excited we are over the significant contributions they are already making!

The whole weekend was once again a fantastic reminder of how just how blessed we are to be a part of a firm with such a down-to-earth & fun-loving culture, and we’re looking forward to a charging full steam ahead into 2017!
