Last Saturday was the Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer, particularly in this case, my calling.
The day consisted of a workshops, some social gatherings, a formal ring ceremony and banquet.. It was an epically full day I’m sure to remember so long as my brain is in tact.
Suffice to say, I learned a lot more about the illusive Iron Ring. I discovered a lot more about what it stands for and I now have a lot more appreciation for this symbol and commitment. By the nature of the commitment, we’re not encouraged to rant about the details as it’s a commitment to ourselves and thus not intended to be a public thing. It’s a great concept & I think it could and should be expanded in some regard to apply to any and all professions, at least in some regard.
Anyway, it was an epic time. Won’t be forgotten any time soon. Photos from the day are here.
