Welcome!

 

Welcome to the web site for the Huntsville Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). ASCE recently celebrated its 150th anniversary, and is America’s oldest engineering society. ASCE’s vision is to position engineers as global leaders building a better quality of life. To learn more about the ASCE, please visit www.asce.org. This branch web site is designed to be a portal for information to reach our 140+ members. I encourage you to view our recent Branch newsletter and photos from our monthly meetings. Please feel free to email me with any questions regarding local ASCE participation or with any feedback for our web site.

 

By-Law Changes:

The Huntsville Branch currently has in place a constitution and by-laws that were last revised in 1981.  It appears that most branches are currently governed by By-Laws only based on visiting websites of other branches.  The Huntsville Branch officers are proposing changes to the current constitution and by-laws and have written up the changes.  Below are the original documents and the proposed changes.  We would like to hear any feedback from our current members.  If you have any comments and/or suggestions please email them to bbailey@4siteinc.biz
