U.S. Energy
Department Under
Secretary Paul
Dabbar describes
an expanding
energy market and
anticipated future
opportunities
for engineers.

ENERGY UNDER SECRETARY: "SIGNIFICANT
EXPANSION IN ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE"

Energy Department Under Secretary Paul Dabbar told ACEC's Convention audience that the U.S. energy industry is thriving and is only going to get better.
"Opportunities to expand is very high for many energy processes, which means
more jobs will become available as the industry continues to grow. That expansion
will mean the need for more energy infrastructure," he said.
Dabbar pointed to significant growth and innovation in solar and wind efficiency, substantially reduced production costs in oil and natural gas, several new
LNG terminals under construction and rapid advances in battery technology.
"Innovation is driving us forward," he said. "We are competing with innovation
rather than price, and it is working."

TRIBUTES FOR RAYMOND'S
20 YEARS AT HELM; SEARCH
FOR NEW CEO ONGOING

ACEC members paid numerous tributes to
ACEC President and CEO Dave Raymond's
nearly 20-year "reign" at the Council with
special recognition at various Convention
functions, including the Board of Directors
meeting, Opening General Session, Chairmen Emeritus Dinner, Engineering Excellence Awards Gala and the Coalition Leaders
meeting.
At the Board of Directors meeting, ACEC
Chair Sergio "Satch" Pecori announced that the
conference room at ACEC National office will
be named the David A. Raymond Board Room,
with a commemorative plaque that recounts
Raymond's achievements. Also, at the Board
Meeting, as well as the Opening Reception and
EEA Gala, Pecori presented various videos on
Raymond's tenure.
Following the Convention, incoming ACEC
Chair Manish Kothari held a surprise party
for Raymond, with more than 100 attendees,
including numerous past ACEC chairs and
international guests.
Former ACEC Chair Gregs Thomopulos,
who heads the search committee for Raymond's
successor, updated the Board of Directors on
the search process. After a selected candidate
withdrew at the last moment, Thomopulos said
the timeline is now to have a new candidate
selected by the end of July, with onboarding in
August. Raymond has agreed to extend his time
in office while this process is underway.

EEA Gala host Kevin
Nealon introduces a
surprise video tribute
to Dave Raymond by
former longtime Gala
host Ross Shafer.
