Membership on ASCE standards committees is open to all persons, including non-members, who might reasonably be expected to be, or who indicate they are, directly or indirectly affected by the activity without dominance by any single interest. Membership on an ASCE Standards Committee is on an individual basis. Members are classified according to their stated interests and professional affiliations (see below).
Membership on a standards committee carries with it an obligation to participate actively in the work of the committee through contribution of technical information, prompt reply to requests for ballots or comments on draft committee reports, and attendance at committee meetings. Failure to return two consecutive ballots will result in automatic termination of membership on the committee.
