W&A Engineering’s Andrew Elliott, EIT was selected to participate in the inaugural ACEC Junior Board of Directors. After a rigorous selection process and interview, Andrew was chosen as one of fifteen engineering professionals to represent the more junior members of the American Council of Engineering Companies of Georgia.
Composed of members between the ages of 22 and 35, the Junior Board is intended to provide guidance and advice to the overall ACEC community for ways to better engage the ever-growing younger employee segment in the industry. A group of young engineering industry professionals who are eager to get more involved in the business side of engineering, engage in ACEC Georgia, and expand their networks through social, educational, and volunteer opportunities, the ACEC Junior Board will create opportunities to bridge the gaps between engineers of all generations in the state of Georgia.
“With an entire generation of older engineers retiring, it’s important for the younger generations to actively invest in their development, their network, and their skills,” Andrew said. “One of the best ways to do that is to build connections with more seasoned professionals and take advantage of their stories and their experiences.”
The Junior Board has five major focuses: input and new perspectives, professional development growth, raising brand awareness, socializing & networking, and volunteering. Of those focuses, Andrew is most excited to offer his unique perspective as a member of a rural community, expand his personal development, and participate in the annual Georgia Transportation Summit.
Please join us in congratulating Andrew on this great achievement!
