Amy-Stone 

Amy Stone, P.E., 2016-2017 ASCE San Antonio Branch President

From October 2016 to October 2017, I have the pleasure of serving as the President of the San Antonio Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers. This journey started so long ago, that I don’t actually remember joining ASCE. I can only guess that it was as an unmarried EIT prior to 2003 as some of the correspondence still bears my maiden name. I don’t know how men track these things. I first joined ASCE to meet industry peers that I didn’t directly work with. Read Full Article
