On February 5, 1915, San Diego residents who were members of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) met at the University
Club and proposed the formation of a local section of the ASCE. The constitution of the proposed section was adopted by the
national organization on March 5, 1915, marking the official founding of the San Diego section. The local establishes professional
standards for its members and promotes relationships between the public and governmental organization.
