About Us

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) was founded in 1852 and has a current  membership of 146,000 nationally.  ASCE is the oldest national professional engineering society in the United States. ASCE is dedicated to the advancement of the individual civil engineer and the advancement of the science and profession of civil engineering through education.


The founding of what became known as the Inland Empire Section was in 1914.  The founders were 11 engineers riding on a train to Pullman.  The purpose of the organization was to "encourage acquaintance and social intercourse among members of the Society (ASCE) in this vicinity and to have papers presented and discussions along lines of interest."


We have three student chapters, Washington State University, University of Idaho and Gonzaga University.  Our Younger Member Group is very active. 


Our geographic area is Northeastern Washington (Okanogan, Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Lincoln, Grant, Douglas, Chelan, Adams, Whitman, Asotin and, Garfield counties) and Northern Idaho ( Boundary, Bonner, Kootenai, Shoshone Benewah, Latah and Clearwater, Nez Perce and Lewis counties.) 


For more information on the history of the Inland Empire Section see the History and Heritage page.  The Inland Empire Section is part of Region 8 in the ASCE organization.


 This website's purpose is to enable us to communicate more effectively with our members of the  Inland Empire Section that now exceeds over 500 members.  It can be used to find upcoming meetings, classes and newsletters.  Please contact with any suggestions about the content of this web site.
