Welcome to the 4th Texas Civil Engineering Conference (CECON 2017) — the gathering place for civil engineers and industry professionals from across Texas and beyond. CECON 2017 is brought to you by the Texas Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers in partnership with the Texas Concrete Pipe Association. Other partnerships include the Texas Water Development Board, Texas Department of Transportation, and Move Texas Forward. Finally, we are partnering with the Texas Chapters of the Geo-Institute, Structural Engineering Institute, Environmental & Water Resources Institute, Transportation & Development Institute and Construction Institute to develop special breakout sessions and provide content for all civil engineering disciplines.
Resiliency in Engineering: A Proactive Collaboration is the theme of the 2017 Conference. As engineers and industry professionals, we are entrusted to design and build infrastructure meeting society needs now and into the future. Texas' population growth, aging infrastructure, flooding, and drought are all challenges to our existing infrastructure systems. We also have new opportunities to address our infrastructure needs due to national and state legislation and funding. We, the civil engineering professionals, must be prepared for these challenges with sound technical competence and knowledge of opportunities, so that we can lead infrastructure solutions. CECON is the place to prepare us to lead in our profession.
CECON is the event to network with civil engineers and professionals aiding in designing and building infrastructure solutions. At CECON, you can earn Professional Development Hours (PDHs), participate in industry panels, meet industry suppliers and strengthen relationships with engineers in many different disciplines.
Join us at the Embassy Suites San Marcos Hotel, Spa & Conference Center in San Marcos, Texas September 20-22, 2017. Come for all three days of the conference to earn up to 19 PDHs, or stop by for just one day. CECON 2017 is THE conference to attend if you are a civil engineer in Texas.
