American Society of Civil Engineers:
The American Society of Civil Engineers is a large organization serving over 115,000 engineering professionals within the United States and abroad and over 25,000 students. ASCE is divided into nine national Regions, each containing several member states, and one international Region. Each Region is further divided into member Sections and many of these Sections are subdivided into member Branches.
The Benefits of Being a Member of ASCE:
As an engineer, membership in professional organizations is a great way to network and build your contact list. Membership in ASCE brings so much more than contact with other professionals in your field. ASCE creates a vehicle to develop your career in ways you may not have considered. This holds true for recent college graduates as well as those who are already well established in their profession.
