Legislative Fly-in

  • 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 2017 ASCE members visited over 230 Congressional offices, advocating for the newly released 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, Water and Water Resources Infrastructure Appropriations for the FY 2017 and FY 2018 budget cycles, FAST Act Appropriations for the FY2017 (passed in April 2017) and FY 2018 budget cycles, and tax exemptions for municipal bonds. 

    2018 Fly-in

    The 2018 Legislative Fly-In will be Tuesday and Wednesday, March 13-14, 2018 in Washington, D.C. and Arlington, VA.

    The Fly-in program includes: 

    • Meetings on The Hill with your Members of Congress or their staff
    • Briefing sessions on key legislation active in Congress and ASCE's legislative priorities.
    • Training on lobbying and influencing your elected leaders
    • Networking with your ASCE peers from across the country
    • A Younger Member Program
    • Tips on continuing relationships with your elected officials once you return home

    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.

    The application for the 2018 Legislative Fly-In is now open! Applications will be accepted until November 17, 2017.
