Just as it does in national, state, and local elections, your vote matters at ASCE.
Your elected volunteer leaders work to serve your needs as a member, help shape the profession, and help move the Society into the future. And, for the next couple of years, whoever you choose as the President-Elect will champion the issues important to you.
The official nominees for 2018 ASCE President-Elect, as selected by the Society’s Board of Direction Nominating Committee, are Kancheepuram (Guna) N. Gunalan, Ph.D., P.E., D.GE., F.ASCE, and Robin A. Kemper, P.E., LEED AP, F.SEI, F.ASCE.
Should technical representation be increased on ASCE’s Board? A Constitutional Amendment to increase the size of the Board of Direction to 18 members, allowing the third Technical Region Director a voting seat at the table, is included on the ballot this year.
Now is the time to make your voice heard and shape the future of the civil engineering profession by voting. Don’t let others decide for you.
