President's Message

Hello, everyone. I hope you’re having a fun and productive summer. This time of year can be a little tricky when it comes to balancing project loads, requests for information (RFI), contracts, specifications, business development, quality control, unreasonable deadlines, and the list goes on.  With our industry running at full tilt right now, it’s challenging to find enough time for that backyard BBQ or well-deserved vacation; which goes along with calling in some favors to have competent colleagues cover your projects while you’re gone. As the saying goes ‘If it were easy, everyone would be an engineer’. 

While I can certainly appreciate the above sentiment, I am now shamelessly requesting your help. I can’t think of a better time to get involved with ASCE. Your local Branches and the Section have immediate leadership positions available requiring a range of commitment and ability. Most notably at the Section level, we are still looking for a Sustainability Committee chair. 

If honing your leadership skills is not what you’re looking for, please consider donating to our Golze Scholarship fund. We continue to reach the next level with this scholarship as we’ve received national recognition for helping Section college students pursue their dream to become an engineer. Please join us in this noble cause.     

Lastly, I want to let everyone know that it’s that time of year to recognize individuals for their extraordinary efforts and achievements. Please click here and nominate an engineer to receive the outstanding recognition he/she deserves.    

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
