Public Relations University and Government Relations University training
workshops for local ASCE leaders in public relations (PR) and
government relations (GR) activities.
These half-day or day-long programs give ASCE groups a "crash course"
in interacting with the media and/or elected officials. Both PR
University and GR University workshops are free of charge and ASCE
staff will travel to the section or branch hosting the training. ASCE can also provide these workshops in a virtual format. To request a training visit the Power Skills Workshops page.
Relations University offers sections and branches a day-long,
interactive workshop as introduction to public relations and working
with the media.
The training prepares ASCE members to successfully promote the profession to the media by covering topics including:
"Is ASCE allowed to lobby legislators?" "How do I invite an elected official to my Section meeting?"
Learn the answers to these and many more questions on how your Region,
Section, or Branch can better influence policy debates. This day-long,
in-depth program will help guide your Section or Branch to expand ASCE's
government relations presence at the local and state levels.
