Goals and Objectives:
As Director-Region 5, envision accomplishing:
- It is my goal to increase the number of active sections in Region 5; add new sections to the region. Increasing activity in Region 5 by encouraging member participation through regional events, certification training, and Annual Meeting attendance.
- Increasing student membership by actively reaching out to young student members to promote next generation members.
- Assist struggling or inactive sections to become reinvigorated. Enhance regional membership retention statistics. Promote section growth by increased section activities.
- Visit all sections in Region 5 to understand their structure, needs, and assist them to grow sustainably.
- Closely work with DTF, WPC, and YPC to promote diversity and mentor young members for section leadership roles.
- Enhance regional level annual technical event fostering technical and professional growth.
- Mentor section leaders and members to step up and take leadership roles at regional level and international level. Identify and develop future leaders of our association.
- Promote membership growth through extensive outreach to regional employers, corporate entities, and local universities. I work in a leadership role for a Fortune 50 energy company. Region 5 being the global hub of energy, oil & gas activities, I look forward to actively engaging my company and other companies in our region to promote AACE professional growth and increase activities in our region.
- Align with Technical, Education, and Certification Boards of our Association to serve as a voice of our members of Region 5 for technical, education, and certification improvements.

||AACE International Activities: David has served in every officer position
within the Rocky Mountain Section
and is currently President. He serves on the
Decision and Risk Management Certification
Task Force and also served on the
CFCC Certification Task Force. David regularly
speaks and writes on cost engineering topics, has often presented
at the Annual Meeting, and has been published in Cost
Engineering. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree and has been
qualified as an expert witness in construction disputes cases. He
is currently a Principal with Project Analytics Group. Prior positions
include Estimating Manger at Lockheed Corporation and Director
at SBSA, Inc.
Goals and Objectives:
Having served as Section officer for many years, I have
seen some good years and some not so good years and have
an understanding of the difference between both. We find
more challenging work and personal schedules today than
when I joined AACE International. That fact makes active participation
in local Sections harder. Our busy schedules also
make the monthly dinner meetings more difficult to attend.
We need to find creative ways to work around those schedule
conflicts, especially for our Section officers and committee
members. I will work with the Sections within Region 5 to discover
reasonable and effective solutions to this issue.
We are experiencing a natural aging of our membership and
we need to be aware of this situation. I want each Section to
actively participate in the scholarship program at some reasonable
level and to regularly communicate and collaborate
with their local colleges and universities. We also want to take
advantage of the Young Professionals Committee and available
mentoring programs to entice and develop our next generation
of cost engineering professionals.
I am an advocate of continued career development through
certifications, publishing, and presenting at the Annual Meeting.
I want to make sure each Section is planning for and encouraging
its members to participate in these efforts.
