Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders

  • The Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL) is a training session for new student officers in ASCE Student Chapters.

    The in-person Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders will not be held in the summer of 2021 due to the pandemic.  The Committee on Student Members encourages new student leaders to tune in to the recorded sessions of last fall's Virtual WSCL for information to help you lead during the remainder of the year.

    We look forward to seeing you in person in 2022!
