I am both privileged and honored to serve as the President of KEAN for the year 2020 and I wish to extend my gratitude to every KEAN member for this opportunity. While our organization fulfills many objectives, it is our collective work to create a sound platform for engineering professionals that has never been more important. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all executive committee members, the various subcommittee chairpersons and members, regional vice presidents and the board of trustees.
