President's Message

Randy Brown, first president's message is now available!

In the course of the past and current year, we have been moving the Section towards taking advantage of the digital age and the skills of the next generation of leaders. We have a new and improved website that continues to be updated with current material and user-friendly features.

One of our goals for this year is to increase support and connection with the Branches and Institutes. We are excited to have a new institute, Utility Engineering and Surveying.

I am pleased to report that the movie “Dream Big: Engineering our World,” will be placed in every public middle and high school in Maryland. This movie shows the important work engineers do, helping to heighten interest and change perceptions about the profession.
