Southeastern Transportation Geotechnical Engineering Conference

Background

Southeastern Transportation Geotechnical Engineering Conference (STGEC) member organizations include the state highway agencies of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia, FHWA and TRB. The first meeting was held in 1969 when the Federal Highway Administration proposed that the southeastern states meet to discuss landslide problems on I-40 near Rockwood, Tennessee, and I-75 in northern Georgia, and settlement problems with high interstate embankments. The first STGEC meeting took place in Atlanta, Georgia, near the Georgia Tech campus on December 5th through 7th, with Professor George Sowers as the guest speaker. Later, a "Steering Committee" was formed to be a governing body of the conference consisting of one representative from each member State, as well as one member from FHWA and TRB. The Committee also established by-laws and articles of association to provide guidance to the administration and organization of the conference. The main objective of STGEC is to exchange technical information, ideas and experiences in relation to technological developments within the geotechnical and transportation industries for economical and successful transportation systems. The previous name of this conference until 1976 was Southeastern Soil Engineering Conference when the present name was adopted.
