Description

Early bird registration is now OPEN for the 2nd Annual ASCE Idaho Civil Engineering Conference! Early bird registration ends January 31st so register today and take advantage of these amazing prices.


Last year's conference was a huge success with over 100 engineers in attendance and 24 PDHs offered. This two day conference is the largest event held by the Southern Idaho Section (SIS) of ASCE and co-hosted by the Boise State Civil Engineering Department. Civil Engineers from all disciplines, public and private sector, and students and faculty from Idaho and the surrounding states are welcome to attend. The conference will feature technical sessions and presentations for every discipline of Civil Engineering as well as the Annual SIS Outstanding Civil Engineering Awards Banquet. This conference is an excellent opportunity to discover new technical knowledge, hear about interesting case studies on projects where you live and work, network with other Civil Engineers, and visit with vendors and learn about their cutting edge products and services. This is the premier Idaho Civil Engineering event of the year and you don't want to miss it!


The conference will take place March 24th - 25th, 2020 at the Boise State University Student Union Building. The annual SIS Outstanding Civil Engineering Awards Banquet will take place on Tuesday night. Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received regarding the Casino Night Happy Hour Event, we're bringing it back for 2020. Happy hour will take place before the banquet and consist of beverages (cash bar) and fun casino games including Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and more!


Sponsorship Opportunities: Companies can help support the conference by signing up for sponsorship opportunities. Sponsoring the conference helps keep the cost of attendance low for engineers and students while offering high quality technical content and attendee perks.
