I am full of excitement for a great year with ASCE, and I hope that all of the membership feels the same. We have a number of new officers coming aboard as leadership transitions into new role, so welcome to Jim Ubert with the City of Emporia and Dr. Scott Schiff from Kansas State University to the Section board. The branch has also moved into new positions and it's great to see some great faces on both boards.

I am very fortunate to be in the unique position of representing all of our membership in the Kansas Section's territory and look forward to a few changes to better connect with you along the way. It's been great to get together at our now annual Kansas Civil Engineering Conference (KansasCEcon) in Wichita. It's been very successful and makes ASCE stronger in our state and we hope to only make it bigger and better in the years to come. If you have not yet attended, take a moment to learn about this year's past conference which can also be found here on this website.

The Section's budget is complete and the schedule will continue to develop, but I hope the Section and Branch can push forward with some new initiatives. That first surprise may be this new website so that more of ASCE's activities in Kansas can be all be found in one place. It will also be easier for those not accustomed to working with the Section to find some new activities and opportunities, such as the Legislative Fly-in. Part of the Section's budget was allotted to support our members who choose to participate in the Fly-In. So no matter where you reside in the Kansas Section Territory (this includes those in the Wichita Branch), we would welcome newcomers to Washington DC. The deadline for registering is coming up soon on November 18, 2022. More information on the Fly-In is located under the Advocacy tab on this website.

Thank you for being involved with ASCE and know that opportunities in leadership, networking, advocacy, service and continuing education are available. I've been a passionate member of ASCE in my professional career in addition to my time at college and I hope to foster that same excitement for ASCE in you. If you would like to get more involved, please drop me a line or find me at an ASCE event this year around the state.

Thank you for your Confidence,

Daniel Schrant, PE

Kansas Section President

How do I become involved?

Opportunities for involvement in ASCE are welcome whether you are a past president or new resident to our great state.  We would be happy to have your help in making our society better.

Become an officer: Every spring we begin our search for new officers.  Make it easy on us and reach out to us if you would like to run for office.  There are openings every year on the Branch and Section boards.

Attend our events.  Attend our flagship event KansasCEcon that occurs towards the end of summer.  During the school year, attend lunch meetings in Wichita, volunteer for STEM outreach, participate in a highway cleanup (with provided dinner following), or get involved in advocacy from your computer or in person via the ASCE legislative Fly In.

Volunteer.  Service is not just for officers.  If you have a particular talent, let us know.  We'll make a spot for you if needed.  Would you like to be social chair, communications chair, write newsletters or work with kids?  Do you want to simply volunteer or lead an event?  Opportunities for involvement go beyond Kansas with ASCE by getting involved in Advocacy.  Share your passion  through ASCE; we want to find a way to get you involved.
