Region 2 Governor Official Nominee

John J. Segna

Vision statement

I had the great honor of working with many ASCE volunteers when I was employed by ASCE. Since my retirement from ASCE, I have remained an active volunteer supporting ASCE’s Utility Engineering & Surveying Institute. If approved to serve as a Region 2 Governor, then I plan to assist the Region 2 Leadership in continuing to bring support to our members.

I also serve as a Program Evaluator with ABET accrediting civil and environmental engineering and engineering technology programs, both in the US and internationally. I would like to encourage the Region’s involvement with undergraduate civil engineering programs and improve our support to our future members and leaders in civil engineering. This would include having members speak with the students on career opportunities and deliver presentations on engineering projects of interest to the students.

Finally, I would like to promote to our members the value of ASCE Institutes. While each ASCE member is provided one free membership to an Institute, not all ASCE members are joining an Institute and taking advantage. The ASCE Institutes are an important and valuable benefit that provides continuing education to our members.
