In addition to service on area projects, Welsh’s ongoing leadership roles within the organization and industry were noted among his distinguishing attributes.

Welsh has served on various committees on behalf of the Associated General Contractors of America, is a member and past president of the ASCE Truckee Meadows Branch, member and past president of the American Public Works Association Nevada Chapter, and a member of the National Society of Professional Engineers. He has also served on numerous community boards and commissions.
