The American Council of Engineering Companies of Colorado (ACEC Colorado) recently installed its 2024-25 Board of Directors, whose terms started May 1.

Dave DiFulvio, PLS (Farnsworth Group – Greenwood Village) will serve as president and accepted the gavel from Immediate Past President Brant Lahnert, PE (KL&A, Inc. – Golden) during the ACEC Colorado Annual Conference on April 25. DiFulvio is the first professional land surveyor to serve as president of ACEC Colorado since its inception in 1956.  

Additional officer installments included David Merritt, PE (AECOM – Glenwood Springs) as vice president; Sarah Foster, PE (Olsson – Fort Collins) as secretary-treasurer; and A. Gray ClarkPE (Muller Engineering Company – Lakewood) as national director.

ACEC Colorado Denver Metro Directors include Shane McCormick, PE (Martin/Martin – Lakewood) and Brian Valentine, PE (Kimley-Horn – Denver), as well as newly appointed Directors Joe Rubino, PE (SLR – Lakewood) and Sarah Zarzecki, PE (Stanley Consultants – Centennial).

Warren Swanson, PE (SGM – Glenwood Springs) will continue as the West Area director and Zach Stone, PE (STV, Inc. – Colorado Springs) will serve his second year as the South Area director. Pat Hillyer, PE (Lamp Rynearson – Fort Collins) was welcomed as the new North Area director.

During his inaugural speech as the new president, DiFulvio emphasized the benefits and privileges of belonging to ACEC Colorado and how its members have a distinct opportunity to collaborate, learn, and improve on the health and prosperity of the business of engineering in this coming year and for years to come. He also addressed the need to support the next generation of design professionals internally within each of our member firms and externally, with greater community involvement.

“In closing, I hope that I have at least convinced you that ACEC Colorado certainly exemplifies those two taglines mentioned earlier, that “Membership has its privileges,” and that “We are better together.” Over the next year as president, I look forward to increasing member engagement and finding more opportunities for collaboration, integrating our strategic plan into everything we do, advocating for greater Qualification-Based Selection (QBS) procurement with local government and other public entities, and bringing as much value as we can to our membership,” concluded DiFulvio.
