President's Message

KimberlyBrown

By Kimberly Brown, P.E. President

September marks the end of my term as the ASCE Sacramento Section President. This message continues where I started by thanking all the outstanding 2013-2014 officers of the Section, Branch, Institutes, YMF and Student Chapters. I am grateful to all the members who took time to cast ballots for our next group of officers. Over the past year, our officers helped pursue the four focus areas I have outlined in my President’s message. On September 16, 2014, I invite you to attend the Officer Installation and Individual Awards Dinner.  Please click here for registration information.

Increase Member Involvement-
If you have ever thought about becoming involved as an officer with the Sacramento Section or the Capital Branch, now is the time.  The Sacramento Section is looking to fill the Treasurer role for the 2014-2015 term and the Capital Branch is looking to fill the President-Elect, Treasurer and Secretary Roles.

Increase ASCE Legislative Presence-
With the start of the school year, I am reminded how important STEM Education is to our young children. The Government Accountability Office recently released “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education:  Assessing the Relationship between Education and the Workforce.  Read more about the study in the legislative report in the September issue of the Engineerogram. 

Increase Interaction with Students and Younger Members-
YMF hosted their annual Make-A-Wish golf tournament in July. As usual, the YMF charity golf tournament was a huge success and they were able to grant several wishes to local children.

Vision-
Kyle Sanford is our new Sacramento Section President. Kyle brings a fresh vision for ASCE and the Sacrament Section. Kyle will be assisted by a great team of leaders continuing or joining our Board of Directors. I am counting on each of you to give Kyle your full support.

Thank you for your outstanding support. It has truly been my pleasure to serve. In closing, I invite each of you to communicate your ideas to the Board of Directors. Please send your thoughts to: asce@asce-sacto.org.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Brown
