The American Council of Engineering Companies, California’s annual magazine Engineering & Surveying Business Review has published its 2017 issue.
The Spring 2017 issue features broad content including ACEC California’s 2017 Engineering Excellence Awards, articles on ACEC California’s successes during the 2016 elections, and key updates on legislative efforts and priorities in Sacramento. Some key articles you should check out include:
Engineering Excellence Awards
Every year, the EEA Honor and Award recipients showcase the exceptional work design professionals can achieve to serve communities and the wider public. ACEC California’s Golden State Award recipient, the Golden 1 Center that was designed by AECOM in association with Henderson Engineering, Inc, is featured on this year’s cover. The Golden 1 Center is home to the National Basketball Association’s Sacramento Kings, and is the first indoor sports arena in the world to achieve LEED platinum certification. Along with the Golden State Award Winner, each EEA Honor and Merit recipient is also highlighted in the issue.
There are three separate articles that outline key legislative policy issues, give an overview of election outcomes, and summarize ACEC California’s efforts to protect and promote the engineering and land surveying professions. ACEC California Executive Director Brad Diede, ACEC California Director of Government Affairs Kelly Garman, and Gene Erbin, ACEC California’s government affairs representative from Nielsen Merksamer Parrinello Gross & Leoni LLP, all authored articles to keep you up to speed on anticipated 2017 legislative action and revisit specific achievements in the 2016 legislation session.
Diversity Leadership Council
Another highlight of this year’s issue is the announcement by Dawn Antonucci, who serves as Vice President/Principal Towill, Inc. In her article, Ms. Antonucci talks specifically about the need to continue to encourage open and inclusive work environments in the engineering and land surveying professions and find unique ways to increase access to the profession to all who are passionate about engineering.
