Bregger Garrison Named to Two NSPE Leadership Roles

Congratulations to Bregger Garrison, who has been named the National Society of Professional Engineers New Professionals Director for 2019-21 and selected for the Society’s Emerging Leadership Program. Bregger is a Transportation Project Manager in Freese and Nichols’ San Antonio office.

As an emerging leader, he will have the unique opportunity to develop his leadership by working through fun, challenging projects with the guidance of established industry leaders.

The Emerging Leadership Program is a pilot program for NSPE. Freese and Nichols’ Tricia Hatley, now the NSPE President-Elect, helped develop this program and worked hand-in-hand with the team lead to facilitate the program at the Professional Engineers Conference (PECON). They had 13 participants from across the U.S. The participants learned about the organization and operations of NSPE, received special leadership training to help with their career development, had dedicated one-on-one time with several of the conference keynote speakers and were provided a mentor who worked with them throughout the conference. The participants also worked in teams on projects related to the new NSPE strategic plan and presented their recommendations to the Board of Directors.

Bregger’s term as New Professionals Director term officially began on July 22 at the conclusion of the NSPE House of Delegates (HoD) assembly. In this position, he also serves on the NSPE Board of Directors.
