Each year, thousands of civil engineering professionals participate in
ASCE’s activities by volunteering their technical and professional
expertise in support of the Society’s vision and mission to advance the
practice of civil engineering.
Service on an ASCE committee is just one of the many ways in which you can give back to the profession. Selected applicants are subject to approval by the Board of Direction in July. Constituent Committee members are approved by the respective Society Committee by September. Committee assignments are effective at the conclusion of the Society's Annual Business Meeting, typically held in October. Applications are accepted January 15 through March 15 each year.
The Society's nine (9) Institutes are focused on specific areas of specialization within the civil engineering profession and provide their members with a full range of educational, professional and technical programs, activities, products and services. Each Institute has the authority to establish its own internal organizational structure, which may include committees, executive committees, task committees, divisions, and councils that it considers necessary and appropriate for the efficient and cost-effective operation of its activities. Please visit the Institutes for information on their volunteer opportunities.
