ASCE Sacramento Section President’s Message

We continue to work with Region 9 to prepare for the CA Infrastructure Symposium that will be held on April 3rd 2020 at the Hilton Sacramento Arden West. The event brings together hundreds of engineers, policy makers, academicians, and students all with a similar passion for making CA's infrastructure reliable, robust, and sustainable. The Symposium will feature water and transportation tracts that will be presentations geared towards this year's theme: "Driving the economy forward with infrastructure." We've already secured some great speakers, including the following keynotes:

  • Barry Broome, CEO of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council

  • Felicia Marcus, Former Chair, California State Water Resources Control Board

  • Jean-Louis Briaud, Ph.D., PE, D.GE, DIST.M. ASCE, 2019-2020 ASCE President-Elect

We encourage you to attend the symposium to learn from the many distinguished speakers about the state of our infrastructure and what the industry is doing in terms of meaningful economic changes. Our goal is to reach 500 participants at the Infrastructure Symposium, so I ask you, our members, to discuss the importance of this symposium with your coworkers and other stewards in your community and encourage them to attend. Word of mouth is our best advertising to reach the audience needed to create change.

The Project Awards Dinner will be held in May 2016, and we encourage our members to begin thinking about their successful and unique projects for the 2019 outstanding project awards nominations. We will provide entry forms and additional details in our December newsletter.
