CI provides professionals, students, and organizations resources to enhance skills, network, and shape the future of the industry by participating in technical activities, conferences, and the development of internationally recognized standards.
The Institute has eight standing committees, called Councils, each of which is chaired by a member of the CI board. Each Council has a number of technical committees reporting to it, which collect information on various technical and industry issues and disseminate it to the ASCE and CI membership.
