The Leader Training Committee is pleased to authorize you to nominate one delegate to participate in the 2024 ASCE Regions 1, 2, 4, & 5 Workshop for Section, Branch, and Institute Leaders (WSBIL), which will be held Friday and Saturday, January 26-27 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Miami Airport and Convention Center, Miami, Florida.   Sections without Branches may nominate two delegates.

Participation in the WSBIL gives Section and Branch leaders an opportunity to exchange ideas and share experiences with one another. It exposes your incoming officers to the tools and resources needed to be an effective ASCE leader, allowing them to strengthen and expand your programs and activities. The Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL) and the Eastern Regional Younger Member Council (ERYMC) annual meeting will be held concurrently, and we encourage your Student Chapter and Younger Member Group leaders to participate in those events. We have worked diligently to ensure the success of the combined program and look forward to your Section and/or Branch delegate’s participation. 

To ensure that your Section and/or Branch receives the maximum possible benefit, you are encouraged to designate the President-elect, Vice President or Secretary-Treasurer as the delegate. If this is not possible, consider a Younger Member growing into a responsible position within the Section or Branch.  (Please note that WSBIL attendees are only eligible for Society reimbursement once every four years.)

Registration

The registration cost, per attendee, is $300.00. This fee will help to subsidize meals and refreshment breaks scheduled during the Workshop and is not reimbursable.  Please register by November 30.

Reimbursement

The Society reimburses the official delegate for the cost of transportation, not in excess of coach class airfare, for those traveling more than 100 miles round-trip. Other expenses, including lodging, meals, etc., are included in the per diem rate of $175.00 (maximum of 2 days per diem).  Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance to secure low-cost airfares. The reimbursement form will be distributed at the conference’s adjournment. 

Lodging

The deadline for reduced sleeping room rates has passed. Please make your reservations at the lowest available rate by calling 1-305-261-3800.
