President’s Message

As the 2022-2023 ASCE Black Hills Branch President, I want to weclome you to our website. On this website you will find updated information regarding meetings, social events, and activities for current and future members alike. Our intent is to provide our members with connections on how to get started at our chapter and where and when to attend our monthly lunch and learns. 

The Branch holds regular meetings in the Spring and Fall, most of them typically on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. These provide the opportunity for networking and one professional development hour (PDH).   

We envision our Branch as a hub for civil engineers in the Rapid City area, and as a way to support the student chapter of ASCE at the South Dakota School of Mines through providing professional connections locally.  

We hope you enjoy your experience here and we look forward to meeting you in person. 

Joseph Updike, EIT. 
ASCE Black Hills Branch President
