Dan began his involvement with American Society of Civil Engineers at Calvin College as a part of the student chapter. After being hired by Prein&Newhof in 2001, he changed his membership to a professional member. He started serving in 2002 on the Southwest Branch ASCE board and served as secretary, vice president, president, and past president. He still continues to serve as a trustee to the ASCE SW Branch board to this day. In 2007, he began serving on the ASCE State Section Board in which he served as treasurer, secretary, vice president, president elect, president, and past president. Dan is very involved in our ASCE SW Branch monthly activities including hosting a table each year at the ASCE SW Branch roundtable event with Western Michigan University Students. He also, about every two years, speaks to the Western Michigan University Student Chapter on a specific topic of interest. He has participated in the Lego Block Kids event through National Women In Construction as a judge for the past three years. He also participates in American Public Works Association, American Water Works Association, and was serving on the marketing committee of the American Council of Engineering Companies until this committee recently dissolved.

Service to Community

Dan was a member of the Oshtemo Township Rotary until last year, when it became too much of a time commitment. However, he still participates in a couple of their yearly events that require additional volunteers such as Oshtemo Fun Day and Salvation Army Bell Ringing. He also serves at his local church Lighthouse Community Church. Dan is currently the Vice Chair of the Local Board of Administration (church board). He also serves as the finance committee chair and head up the chair set-up teams each week to get the sanctuary set up as we are worshiping in a gymnasium.
