Vision statement

I would like to ask for your vote to be your next Region 4 Director. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have been in this role for the past year. This has been a great opportunity for me to have a deeper understanding of the vision and strategic goals of the Society. The knowledge I have acquired over the past year has provided me with a greater understanding on how to better reorganize and reenergize Region 4, as well as expand our reach toward the future.

My goal for our Region is to provide member value. This aligns with the strategic initiatives that the Society is adopting. By providing member value, we will have a more robust community of engineers. Member Value means something different for each and every member. I aim to provide the tools that are needed for our student chapters, branches, and sections to be successful. As a steward for Region 4, I will work diligently with the society leaders, Regional Leaders, Section & Branch Leaders, and Student leaders to improve communication, be present as needed, and help to the best of my ability.

As the Director of Region 4, I am looking forward to be in a position of influence and advocate for our current members and to the next generation of civil engineers. From the colligate student entering the workforce, the fifth grader building balsawood bridges, the Younger Member thinking of making a career change, the seasoned professional that is juggling a family or potentially taking care of an aging family member, or the retired professional trying to give back to their community, ASCE should be the guiding beacon to help our members realize the important roles each of them play as valued members of our society, no matter what stage of their career they are in. Region 4 and the Society needs to be welcoming and inclusive, allowing us to advance the civil engineering profession. It would be my honor to represent Region 4 and provide me the opportunity to create a lasting legacy for Region 4.
