Few sections within ASCE offer the breadth of services that the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section/ASCE provide. With over 3,400 members across the Commonwealth, BSCES has a total of eight technical groups and institute chapters, over a dozen committees, and ten student chapters.
Our efforts have been recognized nationally.
If you and your colleagues are not actively involved with BSCES, you are missing out on some great opportunities.
Since I moved to Boston, I have found it highly valuable and in fact unique nationally to have such strong regional relations between industry, government, and academia to help drive our profession forward. Over the last several years, a lot of this success has been due to the efforts of BSCES.
