Join ASCE Government Relations in a two-part series to hone your public policy and public relations skills.

“How do I even start getting to know my elected officials?” “What do I do when a reporter asks me for an interview?” “How do I get the word out about an issue that matters to me and my profession?”

Register today to find out the answers to these and many more questions on how your region, section, or branch can better influence policy debate in this introduction to ASCE’s best practices in government relations and public relations.
