Paul’s statement for service:
AAWRE is a successful organization not by chance, but due to the dedication of the Board members and staff who donated their time, talent and resources with a passion and commitment for our water resources profession and for our members. Dedication breeds excellence. I believe that AAWRE is an important organization that is greatly valued and is needed now more than ever. Serving it is not a duty, but an obligation.

Steve’s statement for service:
It is my desire to be considered a nominee to serve on the American Academy of Water Resources Engineering (AAWRE) Board of Trustees. I served as the President-elect and President of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI- ASCE) when AAWRE was established and am a Founding Diplomate of AAWRE. I have been a strong supporter of the concept of advanced professional certification and would now like the opportunity to take a more active role in advancing the profession through AAWRE.

Dale’s statement for service:
I have been an ardent supporter of specialty certification for many years, first achieving specialty certification with the American Academy of Environmental Engineers some 25 years ago. I subsequently represented ASCE on the AAEE Board of Directors for two terms. In the early 2000’s, I chaired ASCE’s Task Committee that resulted in the formation of Civil Engineering Certification, Inc., the home of specialty certification within the ASCE family. I subsequently served as the founding President of CEC, Inc. and on the CEC board during the formation of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers as well as the other CEC academies, the Academy of Geo-Professionals and the Academy of Coastal, Ocean, Port & Navigation Engineers
