President’s Message – January 2015
Brent M. Borchers, P.E.
Hello all, and Happy New Year! 2015 is upon us, and now is the time to start breaking those New Year’s resolutions, whoops, I mean keeping those New Year’s Resolutions! One of the goals I had for this 2014 year was to run a marathon. Well, I completed the Tucson Marathon on December 7, 2014, but saying I ran the entire marathon would be a stretch. But, it is a new year, and hopefully you at least paid your 2015 ASCE National and Arizona Section dues. To me, ASCE is the best bang for your buck for a society with a national and local membership presence. If not, you may miss my monthly messages, and these beauties are priceless.
