Dr. Clinton Willson, associate professor, LSU department of civil and environmental engineering, will serve as president of the Baton Rouge branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers. As a longtime and active member of ASCE, Willson has served on the ASCE BR Branch Board of Directors since 2006. He previously served as a director, secretary-treasurer, vice president and president-elect. 

As president, Willson plans to build upon the recently released Louisiana Infrastructure Report Card by educating the public and policy makers on the value of civil infrastructure in our daily lives. A number of ASCE BR Branch members and LSU alumni played a large role in final report.

“We owe it to all of them and to the public to ensure that the results and messages are as widely disseminated as possible,” Willson said.

Willson will also focus on ensuring that current and future civil engineers have the skills and tools to meet the challenges imposed by our critical and, in all too many cases, aging infrastructure. Willson will also spotlight the 50th Anniversary of the ASCE Baton Rouge Branch, increase the ASCE and Branch presence through outreach and educational activities and provide a technically relevant and strong 2012 Louisiana Section Spring Conference.
