Local Involvement 

 
Kjeldsen, Sinnock & Neudeck, Inc. actively supports our industry and our community. KSN participates in regional business events, sponsoring staff to attend events like the premier of the Restore the Delta documentary “Over Troubled Waters” and the Lodi Leadership Forum. We have many employees who are members or on the boards of our local chapters of professional societies, including ASCE and CLSA. Several of our employees have been the guest speakers at these professional societies’ meetings, presenting topics and projects with regional or industry importance to a group of peers. 
 
KSN donates time and funding to organizations that are advocates of protecting and restoring the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. KSN provides education about the Delta whenever possible, by speaking at professional or business meetings, participating in forums about the Delta, and sponsoring and participating in tours of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. 
 
KSN enthusiastically promotes education in engineering and land surveying. Our staff provides job-shadowing opportunities to college students and recent high school graduates enrolled in engineering and land surveying degree programs. KSN takes pride in contributing to scholarships for local students, both directly and through programs to support larger scholarship programs. KSN supports engineering and surveying programs by providing speakers and demonstrations for surveying and engineering courses at the University of the Pacific and San Joaquin Delta College, and has coordinated and sponsored classroom presentations paired with field trips for local high schools. KSN has provided funding for the University of the Pacific ASCE student chapter to compete in several regional engineering competitions, including the Geo-Challenge, Steel Bridge Contest, and Water Treatment Competition. While we are not actively participating in internship programs, KSN has a long history of hosting university interns, and many members of our current staff were interns at KSN prior to graduating from their degree programs.
 
KSN also sponsors high school extracurricular activities at universities and high schools throughout our region. KSN has sponsored high school booster programs, professional musical ensembles, medical research organizations, and organizations providing mentorship to young people.  KSN has even sponsored several seasons of an employee softball team!
