“The Gold Medal recognizes strong leadership. That’s something I’ve always tried to do. The award is something we should all strive for, but not rest once it is received. It’s just like being inducted into the Academy of Fellows in that you can’t sit back once you get there, but instead, stay active and relevant to the Society. There’s still so much more we can do to give back.”
-Col. Ronald Torgerson, P.E., PMP, CHPP, F.SAME, USAF (Ret.), 2017 Walter O. Bachus Gold Medal Recipient
