The Florida Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers is the third largest ASCE section in the Country. The Florida Section, consisting of 13 Branches, 18 technical institute chapters and technical groups, 11 Student Chapters and over 7,000 members, was founded in 1929 and is one of the most active sections within the Society. The South Florida Section is no longer, but is not forgotten; founded in 1926, it was merged with the Florida Section in 1999, and continues on with us as the Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Southwest Branches.
