ASCE Elects President, Officers

Monday, October 7, 2013

Comment | More

The American Society of Civil Engineers has elected veteran transportation engineer Robert D. Stevens, Ph.D., P.E., AICP, F.ASCE, as its incoming president-elect.

The 52-year ASCE member will be the first Technical Region director to lead the 120,000-plus member organization. Society members have also elected 22 other officers to national positions.

Advancing the Profession

Stevens joined the student chapter of ASCE at the University of Akron in 1961; since then, he has served on 38 ASCE and Transportation and Development Institute committees.

ASCE elected Robert D. Stevens as the new president-elect. Another 22 members were also elected for national offices. 

Additionally, Stevens sits on the governing boards of Engineers Without Borders–USA and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association.

He has decades of private- and public-sector experience in the transportation field and now works part time with ARCADIS U.S. Inc., having served as Executive Vice Prsident and Transportation Practice Director for the Fort Worth-based design and eneingeering consultancy.

"I am thrilled to have this opportunity to be the president-elect of ASCE," Stevens said in an announcement. "As I talk to different groups around the country, I find members are not aware of all the opportunities ASCE has to offer, whether it be geographically, technically or professionally."

One of his goals, he added, is to help members "become more aware of the things ASCE has available to them and the ways that they can participate in the Society to help advance the profession and themselves."

Incoming, Outgoing Presidents

Randall S. Over, P.E., F.ASCE, is ASCE's incoming president for the year, after being voted president-elect in 2012. Over holds a BS in Civil Engineering from The Ohio State University, where he served as president of ASCE's student chapter in 1982, and has been a construction engineer for the Ohio Department of Transportation since 1994.

Over has chaired or been a member of more than a dozen ASCE committees, as well as holding the positions of District 7 Director and Zone II Vice President.

Over will succeed ASCE's current president, Gregory DiLoreto, P.E., P.LS, F.ASCE. DiLoreto is the general manager and CEO of the Tualatin Valley Water District in Oregon, where he has worked since 1999.

Advocating for Membership

As the future ASCE president, Stevens said he would like to increase membership. According to Stevens, citing the Department of Labor, there are about 260,000 civil engineers, only 120,000 of which are ASCE members.

Stevens also noted how much the profession of civil engineering has changed over the years, especially with the advancement of computers for calculations and analysis.

He added: "But we still need to understand what we are doing behind those calculations, and we still need more innovation in engineering and more emphasis on education—science, math and technology in engineering—to help us provide a higher quality of life for people all around the world."

National Officers Elected

ASCE members have also elected a slate of national officers who will begin their terms at the business meeting to be held in conjunction with the 143rd Annual Civil Engineering Conference on Oct. 9-12 in Charlotte, NC.

The other new officers are:

  • At-large Director: Charles J. Hookham, P.E., M.ASCE;
