How long have you been involved with ACEC/PA?

In 2004 I began attending events and following issues that impact the engineering community. However, my active involvement didn’t start until 2009, at which time I started participating in committees and advocating for the industry. I’ve been fortunate to serve on ACEC/PA’s Board of Directors since 2013.

What are your best memories pertaining to ACEC/PA thus far?

There are so many, it’s difficult to choose just one. The successes realized through ACEC/PA’s advocacy efforts such as increased infrastructure funding, QBS protections, and other initiatives which promote the important role the engineering profession serves throughout society are memorable. Also, the numerous opportunities to interact with our clients and advance the interests of our membership, as well as our partners, it’s very rewarding.

And then there’s the peer interaction aspect of the organization. ACEC/PA has a history of active participation within the membership and you end up spending a lot of time with your peers preparing for and conducting meetings, events, conferences, and political outreach. The time spent with some great people, getting to know them professionally and personally, is most memorable.

What are your main goals as President of ACEC/PA for the coming year?

Even before this crisis wreaked havoc on our economy, funding shortages were impacting capital programs as well as the ability for our member firms to accurately plan for their future. Certainty is hard to come by during this pandemic; however, a robust, sustainable federal infrastructure reauthorization bill would prove beneficial to our member firms and partners throughout the Commonwealth. ACEC/PA represents over 125 member firms consisting of more than 12,000 professionals throughout the Commonwealth. It’s essential that we deliver that certainty for membership.

Some additional goals support the continuation of the organization’s priorities –advancement of issues through committee/client engagement and development of the next generation of industry professionals. I’m proud of the fact that ACEC/PA is involved with both high school and college programs through our workforce development efforts. The organization promotes diversity and inclusion, introducing students to the opportunities and benefits of a career in the engineering industry. It’s been a great career choice for me, and working through the organization, I want to encourage others to consider a future in engineering.
