We are hoping to find a good balance of advocacy for ESF. We particularly believe that Engineers bring an opportunity to have objective points of view on subjects. By reducing a problem to numbers and science, we should be able to produce defensible positions. So, we hope to use this website and our membership input to gather good information on which to base decisions, and good processes by which to apply it.
Our first advocacy is for the passage of Oregon HB 2020 with improvements in progress. Look for news at this link

The Civil Engineers have succeeded at being able to issue report cards on projects and standing infrastructure that have been well accepted as legitimate and objective input to governmental decisions.
Eventually, we would like to be able to emulate that, and/or help others to emulate that in their decision processes.
We would like to have volunteers who would help us define what that would look like, and why.
