President's Message

WELCOME CLASS OF 2017 AND 2021 

I would like to welcome the class of 2017 to the civil engineering industry. As the newly graduated engineers are busy getting acquainted in their new roles and responsibilities, freshman students are getting ready to embark on four years of civil engineering college education. We ask our members and industry leaders to encourage the recent civil engineering graduates to participate in ASCE and contribute to the success of our profession. We encourage the freshman class to join ASCE, and learn about our industry through participation in ASCE events, visiting local project sites, and meeting and networking with many of our outstanding engineers. We invite our younger members to visit projects in the greater Sacramento area such as the Oroville Dam, Folsom Dam, Downtown arena, etc. and witness some of the outstanding civil engineering projects that contribute to the safety of the general public, and the growth and success of our community.

ASCE’s 2017 Individual Awards will be held on September 21, 2017 at the Del Paso Country Club to honor and recognize Sacramento’s engineers and contracting professionals for their outstanding contributions to our industry and community. Please make your nomination no later than August 11. Click here to access the online nomination form.

Please email us about your project and lessons learned that you would like to share with our members.  Our civil engineering industry will improve and meet future infrastructure challenges as a result of our member’s professional development, success and innovation.

Sincerely, 

Elias Karam, P.E., M.ASCE
Sacramento Section President 2016-2017
