Benefits of Membership
- Meet your peers! ASCE offers the unique opportunity to meet engineers from local companies in a friendly and casual environment. Discuss your latest projects over hors d’oeuvres or simply grab a pint and blow off some steam. Engineering can be a demanding field and getting to know fellow professionals can be extremely helpful.
- Professional development – Our local chapter offers once a month dinner meetings with technical presentations by local companies and organizations. These meetings cover a broad range of topics, and often offer an insider view into local projects. We also offer seminars with opportunities to earn Professional Development Hours (PDH’s) to keep your license up to date.
- Access to Technical Committees – Specialized technical committees meet to discuss issues specific to their field. LVASCE Technical Committees include: Geotechnical, Water Resources/Environmental, Transportation & Development and the Structural Engineering Institute. See our technical committees’ page for more information [insert link].
- Tour the local engineering marvels – LVASCE offers free tours of the substantial engineering projects in the area. From the famous bridges that pioneered structural engineering to the facilities that get clean water to your home, get a tour from the professional directly involved. Recently, LVASCE was able to get an early access tour of the Allentown Hockey Arena, with a detailed look at the order of construction, what obstacles were encountered and how they were overcome.
- Group outings – Not everything we do is engineering! We organize group ski trips, whitewater rafting and attend local sporting events (Go Iron Pigs!!) We also host an annual summer picnic at Monocacy Park.
