President’s Message


As the 2019-2020 ASCE Knoxville Branch President, I want to welcome you to our website. This year, 2020, the Branch is celebrating its 85th anniversary and for the first time ever the offices of President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer are all held by female members!

At the Society level, ASCE has adopted a new purpose statement: To help you matter more and enable you to make a bigger difference. During my term as president, I would like to make this purpose our new direction by strengthening connections, i.e. building bridges, between our students, younger members, senior engineers, and community at large. In order to accomplish this we are forming executive committees on Membership, Community Outreach, Awards, and “Link” to inform and engage Branch members. If you are interested in helping out on one of these committees or have questions, suggestions, or comments please contact us at . We would love to have your participation and gain insight from the unique perspectives of our members. 

The Branch will continue to hold regular meetings, most of them typically on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, with many allowing the opportunity for one professional development hour (PDH).  You can also mark your calendar for the annual technical seminar to be held at the UT Arboretum again on May 1, 2020.

On behalf of all the officers, we hope you enjoy your experience here and we look forward to meeting you at the monthly meetings.



Karen J. McKeehan, P.E., M.ASCE
