Welcome to Region 1 of the American Society of Civil Engineers

For more than 165 years, ASCE members have helped shape the world’s civil engineering profession. Region 1 is comprised of all the Sections and Branches within the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont in the USA; Labrador, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec in Canada.

Our primary purpose is to act as a conduit between the Society and Sections and Branches by providing information and facilitating conversations with our members. Directors and Governors are past directors of sections and branches providing feedback, guidance, leadership, and the resources to your ASCE members. Visit the Contacts Page and email one of your local governors to visit the section, speak at a dinner event, induct new officers, or just assist with your everyday ASCE questions.

ASCE is your professional organization! Please share with us your ideas and help us promote your vision. Thank you for visiting Region 1’s website!
