President's Message

Hello, all.  This month I’m showcasing our Central Valley Branch. I had the pleasure of working through the ranks of this branch finishing up my past-president duties in 2015. 

The Central Valley Branch – like the rest of our Sacramento Section – answers our mission’s calling to support future engineers. The branch supports two scholarships. The branch contributes to San Joaquin Engineers Council scholarship fund to support high school graduates entering college. The Central Valley Branch also has its own scholarship program supporting students already in college pursuing a degree in Civil Engineering.  These scholarships are funded every year by the Central Valley Branch Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Tournament. I’m excited to be heading to this year’s event today as soon as I finish writing this EOG letter. 

In addition to monthly luncheon meetings, the branch plans to start holding more social events after work.  Branch president Erik Almaas stated, “Our last social event took place last December and was fairly successful in drawing together engineers, contractors, project stakeholders, etc. from our community…  One of our goals at CVB is to increase attendance, and we think that these periodic social events are a step in the right direction”.  I agree with Erik.  I think we all need to remember to set aside the stress of deadlines and deliverables to take a moment to appreciate and interact with our peers.  Well done Central Valley Branch members and officers!

Just a quick announcement for our group. Please notice the Golze Golf fundraiser flyer elsewhere in this EOG. SAVE THE DATE on October 4th to attend. 

As always, your Sacramento Section Board appreciates all that you do to advance our profession.     

Kind Regards,

Adam J. Killinger, PE, GE
ASCE Sacramento Section President
