Engineer: a person who designs, builds, or maintains

Advocate: a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy


Every day policy makers are making decisions that have the potential to impact our communities through civil engineering, and often, they don't even know what those impacts might be. Our job as industry experts is to speak up in order to improve the quality of life for our friends, family, neighbors, Coloradans, and the future of our beautiful state. The first step is education and keeping up with what's relevant at our Registered Neighborhood Organizations, City Halls, State Capitol, and National Capitol. Message Sarah Klarich at to join the GAC mailing list.

The online application is now available to attend the 2024 Legislative Fly-In held in-person in Washington, D.C. from February 28 - March 1, 2024. ASCE members will have an opportunity to meet with their Members of Congress or their senior legislative staff and advance the Society’s policy priorities while strengthening leadership skills they can bring back to the workplace.


At the 2023 in-person event, 242 ASCE members participated from 47 states, DC, and Puerto Rico and met with 258 Congressional offices. Attendees heard from an array of senior policymakers to get a deep understanding not just of the issues, but to learn how to be a stronger advocate, prior to their Congressional meetings.


Apply now to represent the civil engineering profession on Capitol Hill and build valuable personal skills that will help advance your career. The deadline to apply is Friday, November 17, 2023. For more information, visit ASCE’s Legislative Fly-In webpage.
