Jim Westmoreland, P.E.
2010 Southern District ITE President
It is both an honor and a privilege to be given the opportunity to serve as the President of the Southern District of ITE in 2010. ITE has always been my professional organization of choice and this year, I hope to give back a little of what the profession and so many of you have given to me over the years: leadership, support, friendship, and opportunities to grow/develop our profession and get involved in ITE.
This year, I have developed an aggressive agenda I call “SDITE Connections 2010”. The core purpose of “SDITE Connections 2010” is to better connect you and our Sections with the many on-going activities and resources of the District, Sections, and International ITE. Over the years and based on feedback I have received from many of you, I have come to realize that to be successful and receive the highest benefit and value out of our ITE membership, we need to continually develop and implement tools that enhance our communications, information sharing, and involvement while, maintaining and improving all of those past traditions and elements that make SDITE special and great!
So as you review “SDITE Connections 2010” (and if by chance you stumble upon one or two items that catch you attention and call you to get in the game), please do not hesitate to contact the goal Chair or me about getting involved. Remember what mama said, “the more you put into something, the more you get in return”. So what are you waiting for? Get connected with SDITE in 2010. We need your help and good ideas.
