Dear ASCE Region 1

To the right  - The University of New Hampshire Student Chapter Zoom Meeting for Order of the Engineer.

UNH Zoom Meeting

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy! The world around us is still very uncertain and continues to face new challenges as we try to heal and think about what the future holds. ASCE and Region 1 continues to monitor world events and government executive orders. The leadership of Region 1 has been discussing ways in which we can engage our Region 1 leadership. As we told you in our last letter, we were looking at new ways to engage our Sections/Branches and Students. To this end we will be scheduling a Region 1 Section, Branch and Student Chapter Webinar on Friday, June 5th, 2020 from 12:30 PM – 4:30 PM. We will be emailing invitation with agenda here to each of our Sections, Branches and Student Chapter. Please “Save the Date”. If you did not get the invitation, please contact Beth Ann Smith.  We want to hear from each of you on how you’re engaging your members. More importantly, we want to hear from each of you on how ASCE and Region 1 can help and support you during this health crisis! The profession of Civil Engineering is “essential”. Many of us continue to work remotely and travel to our construction sites daily because our projects are mandated to be essential. I continue to believe that we will all come out of this health emergency stronger and refocused on what matters most. While we weather this crisis together, ASCE continues to update the resources below.

Region 1 will continue to monitor the situation and will post updates to our web site. Please send us pictures, stories and updates on your personal experiences during this health emergency. We would like to post them on the Region 1 Web Site. You can send them to ASCE Region 1 Governor Beth Ann Smith.

Thank you for your support and understanding during this uncertain and fragile time. Please feel free to send questions to me and your Governors.

Please stay safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Welcome to Region 1!                     

Your Board of Governors is excited about the future of our Region. The Purpose of Region 1 is Advancing the Profession by:  

  • Inspiring Members
  • Creating Excitement
  • Promoting Excellence in Civil Engineering
  • Inspiring the Next Generation

I'm excited about the future of Region 1 and am encouraged by the work of the Region 1 Governors and volunteers. The Sections and Branches are working hard to support their members with Lectures and Forums that offer PDH’s and well as other Outreach activities. One of our goals is to help groups that at are struggling.  If your Section/Branch/YMG/Institute/Student Chapter would be interested in meeting with the R1 Board of Governors, please let me know.  Student transition is another area that we would like to strengthen. Student Chapters are an integral part of our Region, and we want to support them and help them be the best that they can be.

At the Society level, we continue to work on our Strategic Plan. We're building on the Strategic Initiatives and expect them to be released in the coming months.

Are there exciting programs and events going on in your local Section, Branch, Student Chapter, YM Group, or Institute Chapter?  Please consider submitting an item for the Region 1 News.  This is the place for photos from tours, shout outs to award winners, news of successful programs and events, and all the great things happening around Region 

1. It's easy to submit news items via this online form.

Your Region 1 Board of Governors is always open to hearing about what's important to you.  If you have something you want to share, please feel free to contact me at any time.  I will be happy to address any issues or concerns during our monthly Region 1 Board of Governors calls.  Your Governors and I are here to help you and make your group successful.  Please let us know how we can help!

Region 1 and ASCE is a volunteer organization and works through the efforts and dedication of our many of our volunteers. I would like to take this opportunity to Thank You!  I hope you will consider giving back to our great profession as we inspire the next generation.  Please consider joining us on our journey.
