  • 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.

  • Serve on a Committee Today

    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.

    • Society Committees are responsible for approving their constituent committee rosters by September.

      Other Volunteer Opportunities

    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.
