Board of Directors Candidates: Aria Noorazar

Name: Aria Noorazar
Profession: Civil Engineer
Hours committed weekly: 5-10 hours
Who am I?
 My name is Aria Noorazar and I am 27 years old. After finishing high school in Iran, I along with my parents moved to the U.S. 11 years ago and I started attending college. I graduated San Diego State University with a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering. I have also passed my Fundamental examination and became a California EIT in 2009. I currently own a construction company licensed both in General Engineering Construction and General Building Construction. I am also working as a consultant in the field of construction management.
Before owning my own firm, I have worked for government and private sectors in the past as construction manager and civil engineer. I have been part of non-profit organizations such as American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), ASCE SDSU Student chapter and San Diego Aviation Safety counselors. Additionally, I have worked closely with non-profit Iranian organizations such as ISTA (Iranian Student Organization at UCSD).
Among my hobbies are Flying airplanes and working on computers. Flying has always been my passion and dream since I was a kid. After moving to the U.S I strived to turn this dream into reality and as a result, currently I am in the process of obtaining by private pilot’s license."
Why me?
 I think I would be a good candidate because I have previous experience volunteering in different Iranian and American non-profit organizations. I have collaborated with and volunteered at ISTA (Iranian Student Organization at UCSD) along with other Iranian organizations. I also have experience with American organizations such as American Society of Civil Engineers, San Diego Aviation safety counselors and ASCE SDSU Student chapter. During my experience at all these organizations I have learned good team work and collaboration with others. At American Society of Civil Engineers SDSU student chapter I was the team leader for one of their committees. This role helped me gain experience and knowledge on how to be a leader as well as a team member. Additionally, I have been the webmaster for the ASCE SDSU student chapter during my academic career.

I have the following plans and reasons to join AIAP.

1. Connect younger Iranian-Americans to the professionals of Iranian-American society. Younger generation graduating from universities needs to be connected to the professionals of Iranian society in order to be mentored so they can achieve their goals faster and more effective

2. Collaborate with other non-profit organizations. I will use all my knowledge and connections with other non-profit organizations to find common grounds between AIAP and those organizations. These collaborations will help us, Iranians, as a community advance and achieve higher goals.

3. In general I believe that new ideas and a fresh outlook to the Association of Iranian American Professionals and its activities will be very beneficial to all of us, Iranians.
