MAY 2016 PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
May is a busy month! Here’s a quick preview of May happenings.
- Annual Awards Dinner May 19 at The Dana on Mission Bay
- Meet the Brewer Event with YMF May 12 at Hess Brewing
- Infrastructure Week May 16-20
- Sacramento Fly-in May 18, Region 9 event
- Next year’s officer elections late May
- San Diego Report Card Meeting May 5 at lunch at SCS Engineers.
- Government Relations Committee May 19 at lunch at Michael Baker International
In addition to these Section events, YMF has four events planned this month. The Student Chapters, Transportation and Pipeline groups, and Geo-Institute all have meetings in May. Our website is kept up to date with events.
I encourage everyone to come out and learn about how Hess Brewery makes beer and meet the younger members this Thursday evening! There will be food and drink to enjoy as well. Let Nicky Galloway know you are planning to attend.
Please look for your Section election ballot arriving by email later this month. Only active Section members will receive the ballot. Remember, section dues are in addition to national dues. We receive the Section member list monthly from National. If you do not receive the ballot, but believe that you paid Section dues, please call National ASCE to verify your status.
Our Annual Awards Dinner is during Infrastructure Week and Councilmember Todd Gloria is the keynote speaker and Councilmember Mark Kersey will present a City Proclamation at the event. Seats are still available, but please register by May 11 (that’s tomorrow).
Something to think about leading up to Infrastructure Week, how does #InfrastructureMatters to you. If you have a Twitter account, tweet about this and use the hashtag #InfrastructureMatters. My account is @markhwebb256. The San Diego Section account is @ASCESanDiego. We are on Facebook as well. Visit the page, we make announcements there too. We are using all the means we can to let you know the issues and provide you with information you can use. Please let us know what we can do better or if there is something we can add.
Mark H. Webb, P.E.
San Diego Section President
