Welcome from the ASCE Los Angeles Section Board

Welcome back to an exciting year with ASCE! I’m Dan Cronquist and am deeply honored to be your President for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. I would like to thank Steven King and Jerry Burke for serving as President and Past-President this last year. It has been a pleasure to work with them both.

A little about myself, I am a Senior Engineer and Project Manager for AECOM where I lead teams in the design of water and wastewater infrastructure for municipal clients. I love my job because I get to work with good clients throughout California and have great managers who support me in my career and ASCE. I live and work in Bakersfield, which despite the legends of oppressive heat and tales of woe, is a family-friendly town of 376,000 people that my family loves. As far as I know, I have the additional honor of being the first Section President from the Southern San Joaquin Branch.

We’re undertaking two large projects this year. The first is that we are preparing a new website for the Section that will be mobile friendly and provide a contemporary image to the public. We are reviewing the final mockups now and the finished website should be operational before the end of the year. A big thanks to Jerry and Steven for working on this throughout their presidencies.

The second big project is to digitally scan all the Section’s historical archives dating from 1913. These hardcopy records are an important legacy of our organization and the great work several generations of civil engineers have accomplished. Many volunteers have come to help on this effort especially the Metropolitan Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Bernardino-Riverside branches. I was especially glad to see so many younger members working side-by-side with the life members to finish this important work. If you would like to join the effort to scan these documents, please let me know.

There is a lot going on in ASCE this year and I look forward to seeing you at our events. Thanks!

Sincerely,

Daniel S. Cronquist, P.E., P.L.S., M.ASCE
