Legislative Fly-in

  • 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 2018 event, 210 ASCE members visited over 270 Congressional offices, advocating for aviation, water, and water resources infrastructure as well as urging Members of Congress to draft a comprehensive infrastructure bill. 

    2018 Fly-in

    The 2018 Legislative Fly-In took place on March 13-14, 2018 in Washington, D.C. and Arlington, VA.

    The Fly-in program included: 

    • Meetings on The Hill with your Members of Congress or their staff
    • Briefing sessions on key legislation active in Congress and ASCE's legislative priorities.
    • Training on lobbying and influencing your elected leaders
    • Networking with your ASCE peers from across the country
    • A Younger Member Program
    • Tips on continuing relationships with your elected officials once you return home

    Due to rising costs and to be good stewards of ASCE funds, there is a $29 early-bird registration fee and a $49 regular registration fee. The fee is not required to apply. It will be collected during the registration process after your application has been accepted. 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.

    Stay tuned for the 2019 Legislative Fly-In dates and application process.
