Beginning on June 1, 2020, ASHE will have a new Southwest Region. ASHE has been growing in the South and Southwest, with new sections in Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston. These sections are joining an established section in Phoenix to form the new Southwest Region and add additional resources and geographic organization nationwide.

Said Mike Hurtt, outgoing National President and champion of the new region, “ASHE has been growing steadily for the last several years, with much of that growth in Texas and Phoenix, and these sections deserve representation on our board of directors.” Nicole Cao, PE, also a member of the Houston Section, will serve as the first Southwest Region Director.

The new region will be the host to 302 members, of a total membership of 6,862 individuals. The Region is now one of eight Regions ASHE operates throughout the Country: Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Great Lakes, Central, Northwest, West Coast and Southwest.

Information about these and all the Sections and Regions can be found on our Regions & Sections page.
