President’s Message – August 2019

Ted Smithwick, PE, M.ASCE, President ASCE AZ

Ted Smithwick

Please register for our Fall Conference! This event is a great way to learn, network with clients and teaming partners, and reconnect with friends and colleagues.

American Society of Civil Engineers

I joined ASCE in 2004 while a student at the University of Arizona. I feel fortunate to have met so many great people through this organization that has given me leadership opportunities, and helped me create my network of professional contacts. Below are my thoughts on the various benefits ASCE offers:

  1. As I mentioned, whether attending the annual conference in September, a monthly luncheon or happy hour, ASCE offers venues to meet others and develop long-lasting personal and professional connections.
  2. ASCE offers up to 10 free PDHs annually via one-hour on-demand webinars. As Professional Engineers in Arizona, we’re less concerned, but if you ever move to Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, etc… this benefit could help you.
  3. By being a member, you can save $25 on the Fall Conference registration, $60 on Minimum Design Loads for Buildings, $5 on monthly luncheons… and many more!

How ever you use ASCE, thank you for being a member! I hope you had a great summer; thank you for reading.
