President’s Message

 

Josue Vaglienty, P.E.

President
ASCE Orange County Branch
2016-2017

 

 

Welcome to the Orange County Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers. I thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President for the 2016-2017 year.

About 10 years ago I attended my first ASCE YMF meeting in a conference room at Diaz-Yourman & Associates in Santa Ana. There were about a dozen other younger engineers in attendance who seemed energetic and vibrant to be planning all sorts of events – social mixers, seminars, community service events, and technical tours to name a few. There was one individual in particular who took the time to explain the whole purpose of YMF to me – all of it! I asked a lot of questions, but the end result was inevitable – I wanted in! This individual was the YMF President and he welcomed me to become part of the group. His name was Gary Gilbert. I recall that conversation vividly and will never forget it. I will also never forget Gary and all of the valuable mentorship and wisdom he provided me and many others within ASCE. Fast forward a decade, and I’m proud to be part of what Gary started – one of the largest and most diversified ASCE Branches in the nation! 

I consider it a privilege to serve as President of the ASCE OC Branch for this upcoming year and look forward to working alongside the rest of our dedicated Branch Board Officers. We were all present alongside Gary Gilbert during our planning retreat this past summer where we generated fresh ideas and measurable goals for this coming year. We plan on executing these ideas and achieving the goals for the benefit of ASCE OC. We also hope to make Gary proud – I know he’s watching. Again, thank you for the opportunity and I look forward to the upcoming year!

Sincerely,

 

Josue Vaglienty, P.E.
