First, and foremost, I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to our members who have lost loved ones to the COVID-19 pandemic. I also want to acknowledge that many of you may be suffering from the severe financial impacts of the stay-at-home order that has been in place since mid-March. As I write my last President’s message, I want you all to know that you are in my thoughts.

It has been my pleasure to serve as SEAONC President for the last 11 months. In early July, the board will say goodbye and thank you to Past President Tim Hart and board members Megan Stringer, Randy Collins, and Bill Tremayne. We will also welcome incoming President Emily Guglielmo, Vice President Kevin Moore, and new board members. It will be impossible to look back at the SEAONC 2019-2020 year without remembering the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on our lives, our communities, and our livelihoods. While most of our SEAONC members have been able to work from home during the mandatory shelter-in-place order the pandemic has, and will continue to wreak havoc on the economy and our profession. As the SEAONC board transitions to the Guglielmo administration, I assure you that the organization will be challenged by the financial situation but will be in good hands. I want to close by highlighting that despite the unprecedented challenges of the last 11 weeks, important work has been accomplished by our members. Buildings have been expertly designed. Construction has been carefully observed. Our built environment is stronger and safer because structural engineers are committed to making it so. With my highest regards, it has been my pleasure to serve you as SEAONC President.
