Presidents Message

Welcome Back!

Hello 2018!  I hope everyone had a terrific holiday season and you are back to work and ready for an exciting and challenging 2018.  I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself for those that do not know me.  My name is Dace Morgan and in addition to taking on the reins of President for the Central Coast Chapter of APWA, I am the Director of the Civil and Engineering Department at Wallace Group in San Luis Obispo.  I have spent my career focused on all things transportation, especially bridges and pavement preservation.  I am happy to talk about either subject at length, so be careful what questions you ask me!  My career has been a mixture of Private Consulting and Public Sector work.  Before joining Wallace Group in 2011, I spent almost 10 years with the County of Santa Barbara Public Works Department in their Transportation Division.  I want to encourage all of you to share your thoughts on the Chapter and ideas for improving our Chapter with me and the rest of our Board Members.  I can be reached by phone at 805-544-4011 and by email at

We have a good group of Board and Committee members for the upcoming year and we are always interested in expanding our leadership.  Therefore, if you are interested in participating in APWA, please let us know.   

We have a good program of meetings, activities and training planned for the upcoming year, which we hope all of you can attend.  First up is the Young Professionals (YP) tour of the SLO Rock Brewery on January 24, 2018.  Older Professionals are encouraged to attend this event as well!  Right on the heels of the Brewery tour will be our Awards Dinner in February.  Please submit your nominations for Professional of the Year and Project of Year!

I am looking forward to meeting all of you over this next year.  For those of you working in the Santa Barbara County area stay safe through this winter in the burn areas!

-Dace Morgan
