We are excited to announce the May 2019 ASCE Seattle Section meeting featuring presentations by UW and Seattle University students. We are happy to showcase student presentations and celebrate life members of the section. Please join us for a fun evening with friends and colleagues! Check out the "Mentoring" area on the registration page for information on our new mentoring initiative!

Both University of Washington and Seattle University are holding competitions for students, teams, clubs, etc. to present their work to a panel of judges. The winning team from each school will present at the section meeting, and will be awarded prizes.

The presentations could range from the Concrete Canoe team, to undergraduate/graduate student research. This gives students in the civil and environmental engineering department an opportunity to showcase their work and give all others a chance to ask questions.

ASCE Seattle Ongoing Volunteer Needs

Urban Development & Transportation Committee

The Seattle Section is currently searching for two motivated members to lead and revamp the Urban Development and Transportation Committee take charge of the committee. The purpose of this committee is to provide a forum for engineers and designers to discuss the intersection between transportation and urban planning and network with professionals with similar interests. This committee intends to. The committee will host monthly or bimonthly meetings and/or site visits. It can also get additional support from ASCE National's Transportation and Development.

This is a forum for ASCE members and non-members to discuss the issues facing the city and the world today, and how engineering and design are influencing the change. Seattle is going through a rapid and huge transformation of its urban fabric with the arrival of thousands of new employees every month. This has created traffic on the streets and highways, apartment and office space buildings popping up left and right around the city, and new rail systems and bicycle friendly infrastructure.

Please contact Homero Flores if you are interested in leading or participating in this group.

Legislative Committee

ASCE Seattle Section is searching for volunteers to assist with the Legislative Affairs Committee. The level of Involvement can vary and can include providing engineering judgement on current legislative issues to assisting with lobbying.

The Legislative Committee functions in the political arena with focus on federal, state, county or other governmental issues that are of interest to the civil engineering profession; such as university engineering budget considerations, issues that affect the practice of or employment of civil engineers, and environmental issues of significance to the profession. The committee reviews proposed legislation and comments on it with regards to its effect on the civil engineering profession and may also be called upon to testify at Legislative hearings or for other governmental committees. It is also responsible for disseminating information from the Architects and Engineers Legislative Council (AELC) pertaining to state legislation. The committee typically sends at least one representative to the Society's annual Legislative Fly-In in Washington D.C.

Please contact the Legislative Chair Mark Koelling for more information.
