Training workshops for local ASCE leaders in public relations (PR) and government relations (GR) activities.
These half-day or day-long programs give ASCE groups a "crash course" in interacting with the media and/or elected officials. Both PR University and GR University workshops are free of charge and ASCE staff will travel to the section or branch hosting the training. ASCE can also provide these workshops in a virtual format.
