President’s Corner – April 2019 – Dan Barbuto


Hello everyone, the year is flying by fast. It’s hard to believe it’s already April. I hope you have survived Houston pollen and allergy season! I’m excited for the direction of our group and the positive energy that we have had at our latest meetings. I am looking forward to a continued strong year with positive fresh changes to come.

This week I was reminded how important our role is to our clients and our community. We provide an educated voice of reason to guide our clients to make decisions. Sometimes our advice is ignored or not absorbed! But we are there when they need us. It’s easy to get discouraged and to lose sight of the positive impact we have as a profession. Thankfully, rewarding projects do happen and remind us why we became structural engineers. I hope you too have those projects that make you stop and remember why you do what you do.

I look forward to seeing you at this month’s meeting!
