As the 2015-2016 ASCE Knoxville Branch President, I want to challenge you to become an active participant within the ASCE Knoxville Branch.  There are several other wonderful organizations that are open to engineers, but only ASCE provides the opportunity to dive deeper into technical areas of Civil Engineering with your peers and colleagues and to also pass it on to future generations.  The goal of the local Knoxville Chapter is to provide opportunities to exchange ideas as part of the maturation process for the individual as well as the profession as a whole.  Additionally, we want to provide opportunities for individuals and companies to work together to give back to the community and to network with one another.

 

There are several opportunities to participate as volunteers, speakers, and/or mentors to others within the local chapter.  Traditionally, we will continue to hold monthly meetings within Knoxville and Oak Ridge about various topics within the field of Civil Engineering and for participants to obtain PDH’s.
