President’s Message – November 2020

Gary Miller, PE, M.ASCE, President ASCE AZ

Gary Miller

Why are the months of September and October significant to the ASCE AZ Section? The transition from September to October sees section and branch officers who have been serving for the past year pass their responsibility on to the newly elected officers taking their place.

As the past ASCE AZ Section President-Elect and now incoming Section President, one of my first responsibilities was to organize a Section Conference that was held virtually Thursday October 22 nd. Typically, the conference is a day long with many speakers and topics, but given the current circumstances was changed to a two-hour virtual event. While I was disappointed to change such a successful event, I was grateful to the volunteer conference committee who took their time to attend meetings and help make important decisions.

Knowing we have several incoming officers, and working with the conference committee volunteers over the past several months, I am honored to be a part of an organization with so many people who are passionate about what they do and are willing to volunteer their time. This also reminds me of the following quote by Rick Warren:

“When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.”

First, please join me in thanking our outgoing officers for the year. Second, please join me in supporting our incoming officers for this next year as they serve all our members. ASCE is only as good as the officers who lead it, and the more support they receive, the more all members benefit. I look forward to the coming year. Thank you, Gary Miller, P.E., M.ASCE ASCE Section President

Thank you,
Gary Miller, P.E., M.ASCE
ASCE Section President
