Celebrating More than 100 Years of ASCE Texas Section
We are proud to be CELEBRATING more than 100 years of ASCE in Texas and the people and projects that provide Texas citizens with the infrastructure of our modern world.
In July of 1913, dedicated professionals traveled to Corpus Christi to attend the Good Roads Congress. At the conclusion of this meeting, seven civil engineers, mostly consultants and professors, reconvened at the Beach Hotel on North Beach. They discussed organizing the 101 members of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in Texas at that time into a state-wide organization… what we now know as the Texas Section of ASCE. Over the next few months they conferred with the national offices of ASCE and drafted a constitution. Later that autumn in Dallas, during the Texas State Fair, elected officers established the charter of the new organization.
In 2013, we held a Centennial Celebration filled with fun activities and even a published book celebrating 100 years.
In 2018, we partnered with our Dallas Branch to dedicate a plaque to the Old Red Courthouse, the home of our first meeting. We were honored to be joined by 2018 ASCE President Robin Kemper PE for this celebratory event!
