The CSCE of the present is the result of a merger of two organizations that occurred 30 years ago. The Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1884, while the Connecticut Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1919. In 1958, the Section had 523 members. In 1955 (the nearest comparable year for reliable numbers), the Society had 1,033 members. The two organizations met separately until they merged in 1981, by mutual vote of membership, to become the Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers Section of American Society of Civil Engineers or CSCE.

An Important Message About CSCE Annual Dues
 
In the April newsletter, a message from CSCE Treasurer Gary Fuerstenberg was first published discussing a proposed annual dues increase for CSCE members. It was included again in the May newsletter. Voting will be done electronically.  Recently, Subscribing Members (those eligible to vote) were sent an email, to the address associated with their membership, with a link for voting on a bylaw amendment to increase dues by $10 per year, from $20 to $30.
 
THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO VOTED - THE BYLAW AMENDMENT PASSED
