WINTER 2016/17

2016 was a landmark year for Civiltec and we are grateful to everyone, both clients and teammates, who made this past year possible. With the beginning of 2017 already speeding past us, we have set a high bar for ourselves in making this year even better than the last!

As of January 1, David Song is our firm's newest partner and we welcome his participation in ownership duties and senior management of the Civiltec. We are also working hard to fulfill the various aspects of our company's new Strategic Plan by volunteering to clean up our local communities and planning to be at more events and conferences in 2017. Speaking of, make sure you save the date for our upcoming annual "Day at the Races" event: Saturday, March 25 at Santa Anita Park.
