Committee to Advance Civil Technologists
ASCE has created a new standing committee named the Committee on the Civil Engineering Technologist (CCET) as a constituent committee of the Committee on Advancing the Profession (CAP). The committee’s official charge is to “... advance the integration of civil engineering technologists into the civil engineering profession.”
This work is a very important element of the professional and educational initiatives being pursued by our Society. Understanding the distinct and distinguished role of technicians, technologists, and engineers is important to maintaining engineering as a learned profession.
The member and staff leaders of CAP are soliciting applications for committee members through a public application process. It is essential that the CCET be comprised of individuals who are fully committed to working diligently on this important task. As such, we are reaching out to those with a civil engineering background, a history of involvement, and/or those with connections to the civil engineering professional/educational community.
Interested individuals should apply via the public “call for applications” page: http://www.asce.org/applyforCCET/. You can also use a PDF of the application. Applications are due by August 22, 2014. Committee members will be selected in September 2014 and notified as soon as possible thereafter. Applicants should carefully review the charter document outlining the CCET’s detailed charge, review the committee's composition, and understand the expected effort prior to applying.
Thank you in advance for your support as we pursue the civil engineering technologist initiative. Please contact Patricia Jones with ASCE at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the CCET or the application process.
