ASCE, ASCE Region 1, and the ASCE New York State Council

On November 5, 1852, a dozen eminent civil engineers gathered at the Croton Aqueduct in New York City in the office of Chief Engineer Alfred W. Craven to establish the American Society of Civil Engineers and Architects. In 1868, a few years after architects had formed a professional society of their own, ASCE adopted its current name. American Society of Civil Engineers currently represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries and is America’s oldest national engineering society.

Nationally and Internationally ASCE is governed by officers and directors elected from the membership to represent ten geographical areas known as Regions and nine technical specialties known as Institutes.

The ASCE New York State Council is part of the jurisdiction of Region 1.  Region 1 consists of Boston Society of Civil Engineers, Buffalo, Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers, Ithaca, Maine, Metropolitan, Mohawk-Hudson, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Rochester, Syracuse, and Vermont Sections. In Canada, Provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec.

The New York State Council is made of the Section located in New York State.  The council is made up Buffalo Section, Hudson-Mohawk Section, Ithaca Section, Rochester Section, MET Section, and the Syracuse Section.  The Council’s purpose is to consolidate and coordinate the opinions and actions of the approximately 6,600 ASCE members across the Section and Branch relative to New York State’s affairs on common Civil Engineering interests.
