Are you an ASCE member interested in walking the halls of Capitol Hill and learning firsthand how policy is crafted?
Every spring, ASCE holds its Legislative Fly-In Program in Washington, DC, an intensive two-day program that provides participants with an inside look at the public policy process. At the 2019 event, over 250 ASCE members visited over 360 Congressional offices (that includes nearly two-thirds of the House of Representatives), advocating for a 25-cent per gallon motor fuels tax increase to help fix the Federal Highway Trust Fund, full funding of key infrastructure programs in FY2020 and urged Members of Congress to follow ASCE’s Principles for Investment as they draft a bipartisan infrastructure bill as well as urging Members of Congress to draft a comprehensive infrastructure bill.
The 2020 Legislative Fly-In takes place on March 11-12, 2020 in Washington, D.C..
The Fly-in program includes:
Due to rising costs and to be good stewards of ASCE funds, there is a registration fee. Last year's fees were set at $39 for early-bird registration fee and at $59 for regular registration.No fee is required to apply. It will be collected during the registration process after you have been selected to attend the Legislative Fly-In. ASCE Government Relations offers a limited number of travel awards to help defray some travel costs. The remaining travel costs are the responsibility of the attendee.
The application will be made available on October 1, 2019 and the deadline to apply to the 2020 Legislative Fly-In is November 21, 2019. We will notify selected attendees on a rolling basis beginning December 6, 2019.
