The geographic structure of ASCE tends to be confusing, so I decided to break it down in the first video of my new series, ASCE with Bad Drawings. The geographical structure is drawn (badly) in the video and shows exactly how the country is broken up. Note that the Regional lines are not necessarily followed by Student Conference Competitions. For example, Northern Nevada competes with Northern California in the Mid-Pacific Conference.
ASCE consists of Regions, Sections, Branches, Younger Member Groups, and Student Chapters. Depending on your location, Sections can operate very differently. For example, Pittsburgh has its own Section. The area is highly populated and the Section oversees most of the programs and events. Nevada Section, on the other hand, is a very large geographical area and they don’t plan any programs. Instead, they oversee operations and distribute funds to lower divisions of ASCE.
