Region 8 Governor Official Nominee

Portrait of Jaffer Almosawy

Vision statement

ASCE made me. Three words that embody everything I have gained from being involved in this organization. From President of the UNLV ASCE Student Chapter to President of the Las Vegas Younger Member Forum to Chairing the 2018 Western Regional Younger Member Council Conference in Las Vegas to serving on the Committee on Younger Members. ASCE has provided numerous opportunities that have not only expanded my professional network but also helped build my career through the numerous conferences, webinars, and symposiums that I have been able to attend. My goal as Governor is to continue serving ASCE by providing members, institutes, sections, branches, younger members, students, and life members with valuable resources that can hopefully provide these same opportunities in hopes of continuing to build leaders throughout ASCE, which will be essential in solving some of Society’s toughest challenges in a way that holds Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) paramount.
