ASCE President Kacey Paul, P.E.

Spring is my favorite time of year!  It’s hard to beat Texas wild flowers.  It’s also an exciting time of year for ASCE, and your Austin Branch has a number of great activities and presentations lined up for you in the next few months.

First off, we hope you will join us for our 2019 Continuing Education workshop – Feats of Engineering, where we will have presentations from a number of ground-breaking projects across our great state.  This event will be an all-day event scheduled for Friday, April 5th and will include presentations from City of Austin, LCRA, the Texas Bullet Train project, and more.  For additional information on registration and/or sponsorship, contact our Continuing Education Chair, Jason Garza, at or me at bird registration ends March 15, so click here to register! 

Next, our March and April luncheons will bring in presenters from TxDOT and CTRMA, respectively.  Registration information for these luncheons can be found on our website –

In February, ASCE – Austin Branch presented Tony Buonodono, P.E. with our 2019 Civil Engineer of the Year award.  Tony has been practicing and contributing in the field of engineering for over 14 years.  He is a leader in his company, in the industry, and in our community.  He has played a pivotal role in guiding both ASCE and TSPE throughout his career.  Tony is a Past President of ASCE Austin Branch and served on our board for 7 years.  He currently serves as the Texas ASCE Treasurer and Stakeholder Committee Chair for the Austin Branch.  

Lastly, now is a great time to get involved!  If you’ve been wanting to contribute in any way to help make our branch the success that it is, please contact me (830-798-6265, or another officer or committee member.  Thank you for everything you do to support ASCE!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
