Re: 2010 - ASCE President Election

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ASCE members:
I have had the pleasure of serving with Kathy Caldwell on the ASCE Executive Committee, Board of Direction, and Strategic Planning Committee.  Based on this experience, I know that she will be a terrific ASCE President.  Four traits stand out:

(1) Values – She consistently does the right thing, even if it occasionally goes against the grain.

(2) Leadership – She listens, thinks, and then speaks … in that order.

(3) Passion – If anyone has ever had more ASCE blood in their veins, I have yet to meet them.

(4) Fun – She makes even the most tedious ASCE service enjoyable for everyone around her.

I therefore believe that Kathy Caldwell will be an excellent steward of ASCE over the next three years.  I have formally endorsed her candidacy.  So has ASCE's Structural Engineering Institute (SEI).  You might also be interested to know that Kathy is a structural engineer!

DISCLAIMER: While Kathy and I share the same excellent surname, we are related only by friendship and have never worked for the same employer.

The ASCE National nominating committee has selected two candidates for President-Elect in 2010.  The candidates are Moustafa Gouda and Kathy Caldwell.

The New Jersey Section Board nominated Moustafa in his bid for President-Elect of the ASCE National Board. All three New Jersey ASCE Branches have endorsed him.

Please be sure to vote for all offices once the ballots are provided in the ASCE National Newsletter.

For more information on Moustafa you can visit his webpage at:

I have worked closely with Moustafa for the past 7 years and can attest to his character and capabilities as an Engineer, Manager, Administrator, and personal and professional friend and peer. I would appreciate your vote for Moustafa as ASCE President Elect.

Thank you.
