Access recorded webinar

As our elected officials and decision-makers grapple with issues like modernizing our infrastructure and improving community resilience, the next generation of civil engineers is needed to weigh in on issues mattering most to the profession and to society. ASCE is working to ensure the next Congress and Administration have the tools and information they need to make strategic investments and create sound infrastructure policy. Attend this session to learn how to develop the skills needed to be a leader in your community and influence infrastructure policy. Learn about plans for the 2021 Infrastructure Report Card and prospects for infrastructure legislation in the next Congress to help you sound informed in internship and job interviews!
