President's Message

We continue to work with Region 9 to prepare for the Infrastructure Symposium that will be held on March 18, 2016 at the Sheraton in Sacramento. The symposium will feature water and transportation tracts.  We encourage our members to attend the symposium to stay current with the changes in our industry, and learn from many distinguished speakers about the state of our infrastructure.  

The Project Awards Dinner will be held in April 2016, and we encourage our members to enter their successful and unique projects for the 2015 outstanding project awards. We will provide entry forms and additional details in our December newsletter.

The Sacramento Section has embarked on the challenging mission to raise $100,000 for the Golze Scholarship Fund.  We plan to award scholarships to deserving students attending Chico State, Sacramento State, UC Davis, and the University of the Pacific. The students will carry the torch and lead our industry to rebuild our infrastructure.

The following quote from a scholarship recipient highlights the importance of the Golze Fund and our duty to invest in education and support the deserving civil engineering students. “My mother’s words always echo in my ears, ‘Work hard, earn your education, and pay off the family sacrifices.’”

We have raised over $40,000 to date, and hope that you support this important mission of reaching our goal of $100,000.
