From now on, the dues are waived with the exception of the life member service fee, Branch and Section event fees, and conference fees.

As Life Members of ASCE, these individuals have represented to the people of this country the true nature of our people serving profession. They have endured many obstacles as you paved the way for us practicing today as well as future generations, and without their tenacity we would not experience our enhanced quality of life. Civil engineers are routinely the “unsung heroes” of the built environment, we thank them for their contributions to the health, safety and economy of our nation and the world.  True professionals in which all people may have confidence, they have dedicated their talent, time and expertise to the advancement and betterment of people. On behalf of the ASCE Phoenix Branch Board of Direction recognize them and thank them you for their contributions to civil engineering.
