Alabama Section Montgomery Branch

Submitted by Brad Williams

The Alabama Section Montgomery Branch dedicated its October Branch meeting to recognizing the leadership and volunteerism of each of its former Branch presidents.

Those leaders, during their time with the Branch, put forth great effort to uphold and enhance the integrity and ethics of the civil engineering profession, while serving engineers and the community in the River Region. By way of our past presidents, the Branch has been able to foster professional interaction between students, Younger Members, and experienced professionals, as well as instill enthusiasm in the profession and Branch membership.

The Montgomery Branch of ASCE was established in 1984 with 30 original members, and several of these charter members were on hand to witness the recognition of the past presidents. Thirty-three years later, the Branch continues to be a highly active professional organization within the River Region, largely due to the efforts of these honored individuals.

According to Brian Felder, 2009 Branch president, “It was an honor to be recognized with so many leaders in the ASCE community.”
