Are you an ASCE member interested in walking the halls of Capitol Hill and learning firsthand how policy is crafted?
Every spring, ASCE holds its Legislative Fly-In Program in Washington, DC, an intensive two-day program that provides participants with an inside look at the public policy process. In 2016 ASCE members visited nearly 240 Congressional offices, advocating for a new Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), water infrastructure funding, and the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization (FAA).
The 2017 Legislative Fly-In will be Tuesday and Wednesday, March 14-15, 2017 in Washington, D.C. and Arlington, VA.
The 2017 Legislative Fly-in program includes:
Due to rising costs and to be good stewards of ASCE funds, there is a $29 early-bird registration fee and a $49 regular registration fee. The fee is not required to apply. It will be collected during the registration process after your application has been accepted. ASCE Government Relations offers a limited number of travel awards to help defray some travel costs. The remaining travel costs are the responsibility of the attendee.
