Form an International Group or Section

  • Any country may establish an International Group by providing a petition signed by 20 ASCE members in that country, along with a constitution, bylaws and a statement of purpose. After operating successfully for one year, the Group may upgrade to an International Section.


  • ASCE International Groups

    The purpose of ASCE Groups is to provide local engagement for ASCE members through meetings, guest speakers, networking, professional development, and technical content. Groups are encouraged to organize local events, seminars, and meetings.

    ASCE International Branches and Groups may be formed at the city, province, or regional level within a country. Successful Groups efficiently use member talent and effort.

    To Form a Group

    Forming an ASCE International Group requires the steps below. ASCE Global Programs will work with you to meet the below requirements.  Contact ASCE Global Programs when you’re ready to get started and we will provide documents and assistance to you.

    • Petition
    • Statement of Purpose
    • At least 20 signatures of ASCE voting members* with their member numbers
    • List of proposed officers

    *A voting member of ASCE is a member in good standing in the Associate, Member, Fellow, or Distinguished member grades. Affiliates and Students may participate in the Group but are not eligible to sign the petition or hold office as President, Vice President, Treasurer or Secretary.

    Once the Group is formed, ASCE will provide the officers with the Region 10 Guide that covers officer positions, responsibilities of the Group, and other helpful information.

    ASCE International Sections

    ASCE international Sections are formed when active Groups file a formal petition to become an ASCE International Section. Sections are formed at the country level, and functions of the Sections are regulated by Rules of Policy and Procedure, established by the ASCE Board of Direction.

    ASCE Sections are intended to:

    • Achieve closer personal acquaintance and a spirit of cooperation among engineers
    • Provide educational activities both of a professional and/or a technical nature
    • Study local engineering problems
    • Encourage members to prepare or discuss papers involving technical areas
    • Cooperate with local engineering societies in matters of common interest
    • Foster Student activities and cooperate with local ASCE Student Chapters
    • Assist in attaining the objectives of the Society and in providing service to the members

    To Form a Section

    If your Group has been active for over a year and is ready to discuss Section formation, please contact ASCE Global Programs. The Group will need to file a formal petition with the ASCE Region 10 Board of Governors for approval.

    The documents will include:

    • Petition
    • Statement of Purpose
    • At least 20 signatures of ASCE voting members* with their member numbers
    • List of proposed officers
