Welcome to the ASCE Texas Section Centennial CELEBRATION!
We are proud to be CELEBRATING 100 years of ASCE in Texas and the people and projects that provide the citizens of Texas 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. Their topic of discussion was 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, drafted a constitution and later that autumn in Dallas, during the period of the Texas State Fair, elected officers and established the charter of the new organization.
