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. The Distinguished Member recently completed a three-year term on the Board of Direction as a technical region director and has been president of the Geo-Institute (2008-09). 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.
He will be inaugurated as president-elect at the Annual Business Meeting this fall during the ASCE 2019 Convention in Miami.
