This section of the website will report on progress made in the implementation of actions that support the Strategic Directions:
1. Enhanced Services To Members
CSCE will provide services and benefits to members within all areas of civil engineering activity, targeted to their specific career development needs
2. Growing With Youth
CSCE will develop programs and benefits that will support students and Young Professionals, targeted to their specific career development needs
3. Leadership In Sustainable Infrastructure
CSCE will influence how public infrastructure in Canada is planned, designed, constructed and maintained
Volunteering with the CSCE Edmonton Section is an incredible way to build your network in the Edmonton engineering community. The Edmonton Executive is a small group of engaged professionals who meet on a monthly basis to facilitate the planning and delivery of the yearly program.
There are opportunities to get involved as a Member at Large, or to take on a formal role in one of the elected positions. For information about our current volunteer opportunities, visit the Current Executives page.
To get involved, contact our Membership Chair.
