The annual report by ASCE's President highlights significant actions and events affecting the Society. A dues increase is unavoidable even if programs and services are held at their present level. Improved managerial procedures are needed to coordinate technical committee work, as revealed by the Newnam Committee. A streamlining of staff operations is necessary as well.
