Welcome to The American Society of Civil Engineers Wisconsin Section

Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 140,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society. The Wisconsin Section of ASCE was originally organized as the Milwaukee Section. The Milwaukee Section started on March 20, 1923. Several meetings were held jointly with the Engineers and Scientists of Milwaukee (ESM) and in September 1926, a contract was signed affiliating the two groups. In April 1938, the Milwaukee Section changed its name to the Wisconsin Section. Over time, four branches have been established-Southwest in 1962, Fox River Valley in 1966, Northwest in 1974, and Southeast in 1977. The Wisconsin Branch currently consists of approximately 2000 members.

2020 Wisconsin Infrastructure Report Card Release Updates

The ASCE Wisconsin Section Report Card Committee is currently working on the Infrastructure Report Card for Wisconsin!

Currently our technical chapters are finalizing their Chapters and Chapters are under peer review of the Section. Once the peer review is complete, the Chapters will be sent to the Society for review and approval. In the near future we will be looking to raise funds for the release event and for producing Report Card pamphlets to hand out to Section Members, Elected Officials, and other parties who we will be talking to about the Report Card.

Our next Wisconsin Section Infrastructure Report Card Release Event Fundraising Event is currently being planned for April in Madison. More information to come on the event!

If you are interested in helping raise funds or helping with a different aspect of the Report Card, please reach out to Jennifer (Jennifer.Schaff@countymaterials.com) or Ken (KMika@Geosyntec.com). 


2020 ASCE Wisconsin Section Spring Technical Conference Postponed

The ASCE Wisconsin Section Board of Directors has elected to postpone the 2020 Spring Technical Conference in Sheboygan until spring of 2021. This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat and our desire to prioritize the safety of our members and their immediate communities.

We know that this will come as a disappointment to the registrants, exhibitors and industry professionals who were due to attend the event, and we apologize for the inconvenience it may cause. All registration fees will be refunded in full.

We would like to recognize all of the hard work that the 2020 Spring Technical Conference Planning Committee has put into preparing for the Conference, and look forward to seeing their efforts be realized in the Spring of 2021.
