ASCE Election Results: Briaud to Be 2020 President-Elect

Jean-Louis Briaud has been elected ASCE’s 2020 president-elect by a majority of Society members and will advance to serve as 2021 president.

Briaud, Ph.D., P.E., D.GE, Dist.M.ASCE, has taught at Texas A&M University since 1978, most recently as a distinguished professor since 2015.

Briaud has served in a number of Society roles.

He also led the Federation of International Geo-Engineering Societies from 2014 to 2018 as its president.

“Over the last three years, I have been a member of the ASCE Board. This experience has allowed me to learn firsthand what works well and what can be improved,” Briaud said in his nominee’s vision statement.
