As a current Region 10 Governor who has worked around the world and led the development of sustainable infrastructure to protect human health and the environment that resulted in the viable growth of communities, businesses and regional economies, I have a global vision for the future of civil engineering.
This vision aligns with ASCE's mission to build a better quality of life by advancing technology, developing global leaders, and advocating sustainable infrastructure.
In Region 10 ASCE membership is growing resulting in an expansion of global relationships and opportunities. Region 10 also has the greatest diversity of civil engineering problems and successful solutions. This provides a unique situation where Region 10 civil engineers can have a huge impact on the development and dissemination of best practices, innovative technology, and performance-based design.
If re-elected, I will continue to use my business acumen and communication skills to lead strategic change and strengthen ASCE as a global society. I will promote international activities including building global partnerships, providing professional development and civil engineering educational opportunities, and facilitating the transfer of civil engineering knowledge.
