John F. Garner, P.E., M.ASCE

2020–2023 Region 4 Governor

Vision Statement

The vision which guides my involvement in ASCE is the development of a sustainable infrastructure which supports the growth of a free society. Sustainable infrastructure meets the challenges of a developing world while maintaining, preserving, and even restoring the natural environment. This can only happen through education, awareness and advocacy of sustainable principles. I believe that ASCE provides the best avenue to promote technical understanding and establish a platform for supporting and promoting the principles of sustainability.
