Tor J. S. Anderzen, P.E., F.ASCE

2020–2023 Region 8 Governor

Vision Statement

ASCE has been a meaningful and significant part of my life from the day I was recruited to help at a student outreach event in Laurel, MT in early 2007. Through my service as a volunteer and elected officer, I have had many opportunities to grow personally and professionally while meeting with students, communities, service organizations and legislative officers.

It is clear that we face several challenges as a society and our dues-paying membership has been declining for many years now. I believe that by increasing our relevancy as advocates for our built environment we will build a wider base of civil engineers in our currently aging profession. By defining the value of ASCE membership we will inspire new volunteers and grow our local, regional and national initiatives.

As a Region 8 Governor I would be honored to serve as a resource for fellow members in Alaska and throughout Region 8 while sharing my passion for our infrastructure, outreach, advocacy and professional advancement.
