ASEI SoCal HISTORY
The ASEI Southern California Chapter was formed in 2004 by five visionaries from the Boeing Company: Paul Sikand, Darsh aggarwal, Jay Patel, Ravi Kahandal, and Sham Hariram. Subsequently, several engineering leaders from various reputable aerospace companies in the LA and Orange County areas came together with the vision to build a strong ASEI chapter in Southern California. They appointed an ad-hoc Board of Directors and in August 2005 an executive committee was elected consisting of Paul Sikand (President), Kul Bhushan (Vice President), Harish Bhutani (Treasurer), and Sham Hariram (Secretary). In 2006 the SoCal chapter hosted a successful ASEI National convention under the leadership of Shreekant Agrawal as the convention Chair. In December 2006, formal elections were held to form a Board of Directors of 15 members. The chapter strives to be a vibrant organization providing its members with professional networking events, community service opportunities, and mentoring.
