Abstract: Formal civil engineering study groups sponsored by the ASCE can be a cost effective way to disseminate the latest engineering information. Small study groups within each ASCE region could present detailed solutions to problems tempered by local conditions, climate, codes, prices, and tradition. Cost would be minimized since this is a cooperative, evening program, drawing speakers from within its own ranks, or course materials from ASCE correspondence courses. This would eliminate additional expense incurred when attending national or regional conferences.
