The Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) is recognized as the premiere professional forum providing opportunities for all those interested to collaborate in advancing the technical and professional practices of utility engineering and surveying. The goals are simple: to be a “one-stop shop” for utility infrastructure systems information; to expand professional development programs; to eliminate industry fragmentation; to be a leader for the Utility Infrastructure Report Card; and to be an educator for politicians.
For the communities of Miami-Dade County, a local chapter was created in October 2015 and is recognized as the first Chapter to submit a Memorandum of Understanding to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). On a local level, the primary function of the Miami-Dade UESI Chapter is to provide support and educational opportunities for professionals in the diverse field of utility infrastructure in the public right-of-way. This is accomplished through regular luncheon programs, networking opportunities, committees, scholarship support, and special-topic outreach campaigns on political or community issues of common interest. The functions of the local UESI are governed by a local committee, chaired by Chris Zavatsky of Tetra Tech, which is open to membership to all local interested professionals in the field.
The Miami-Dade UESI Chapter is in need of volunteers from the following areas:
Right-of-Way Owners (State, County, and/or Municipal)
Drainage (State, County and/or Municipal)
Communication Utilities (e.g. Phone/Internet/Cable/CCTV)
ITS Systems (FDOT)
Those interested should contact Chris Zavatsky at email@example.com.
