Welcome to Region 8 of the American Society of Civil Engineers

Welcome to Region 8’s Website!

ASCE Region 8 is large in area comprised of 13 Sections (Alaska, Arizona, Columbia, Hawaii, Inland Empire, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Seattle, Southern Idaho, Tacoma-Olympia, Utah, and the Western Region of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) which includes the Providences of Alberta and British Columbia, Yukon Territory, and the Northwest Territories). The Region has seven Governors and a Director with many Sections, Branches, Younger Members Forums, Student Chapters and members that formulate ASCE Region 8 and Civil Engineers.

ASCE is working hard to develop opportunities and programs for the membership and this website will try to reflect what is happening at the Society level however the focus of the Region 8 website will be more towards the Region’s activities.  The Society website is: www.ASCE.org, and if you have not visited, go explore.  Since you are already on Region 8’s website, take bit of time to explore here as well.

It is an honor to be your Region 8 Director and to also represent you on the Society’s Board of Direction.  This is one of many conduits for information and services between the Society and you.

Thank you for visiting our website and if you have comments or questions, please contact either myself or any of the Governors.

If I forget to tell you; Region 8 is GREAT and the MEMBERS are AWESOME!

Thank you for being a member of ASCE.

Dale A. Nelson, P.E., F.ASCE

Director, Region 8
