Mr. Weston has been an active member of the greater Austin Contractors and Engineers of Austin for many years. He currently serves on the Board of Directors, the Regulatory Committee and the Symposium Committee and has been involved in the annual symposium as both a moderator and a panel member.
In addition to his work with the ACEA, he is currently the Vice Chair for the Geo-Institute of the Texas Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), through which he taught the local ASCE prep class in geotechnical engineering for the PE exam for many years. In his personal life, Tim coaches middle school volleyball at Brentwood Christian School, plays soccer and serves on the Board of Directors of the Mainspring School. Tim and his wife Laurie are involved in serving at their local church, working with Samaritan’s Purse through Operation Christmas Child and spending time with their children Nick (15), Abby (13) and Jack (11).
“I have enjoyed my time serving the engineering and construction community through the Regulatory Committee, the annual symposium and the Board of Directors. As an engineer, I first got involved with the ACEA to share ideas with contractors and the city on how to improve design and construction practices. While we have seen some successes to date, there is still work to be done.
