President’s Message

President’s Message

Greetings, and welcome back!  Without a doubt the 2020-2021 year is shaping up to be one for the books for the Houston Gulf Coast Section.  I do not think anyone could have planned for the current environment we find ourselves in.  The good news is, in our line of work unforeseen challenges and unexpected events occur daily.  As project professionals, we are built for these times.  The board and I will continue to provide valuable content via world class presenters, resources to improve your effectiveness as a project controller, and a welcoming social environment (both virtual and in-person), as we have done for years.

Our goal is to become stronger through this time and we need your help to do that.  If you are a regular attendee to our events, please continue with your support and reach out with new ideas or opportunities.  If you are new to our organization, we are so glad to have you. I was once new to this organization too, and the encouragement and support I have experienced from AACE through the years has made a positive difference in my career and professional network.  My goal is for each of you to share that experience.

I am excited about this year, and I look forward to interacting with all of you over the next 12 months.  Please check back to our site regularly.  We will have meeting updates, details on opportunities to get involved, and community outreach events as well.

See you soon,

Heath Whitaker – President, Houston Gulf Coast Section
