The Louisiana Section of ASCE approved the establishment of the Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute – Louisiana Chapter (“UESI-LA”) by approving the Chapter’s Bylaws at January 24, 2020 Section’s Board meeting in Lafayette. With the establishment of this ASCE Institute, Louisiana Section will have four (4) active ASCE Institute Chapters in the State, T&DI, COPRI, UESI, and SEI-New Orleans Chapter.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the Chapter has not been able to hold any in-person meetings and conduct official election of officers. The Advisory Committee has appointed Dr. John Matthews, PhD, Director of the Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech University as Chair, Suzanne McCain, PE, Branch Manager - T2 Utility Engineers as Vice Chair and Ali Mustapha, PE, F.ASCE, Executive Director – Caddo Levee District as Secretary/Treasurer.

The Chapter is developing a plan to conduct Quarterly virtual meetings (seminars) and is asking interested ASCE and UESI members for recommendations of topics and speakers for these virtual seminars. Also, the Chapter is asking for volunteers to serve on the Chapter’s Board and committees to help in organizing a successful institute that will meet the needs of all the Section members and serve the industry, State and local Municipal Governments.

Respectfully Submitted,

Ali Mustapha, P.E., F. ASCE, UESI-LA Chapter
