Government Relations and Public Relations University Workshop

Saturday, June 15, 2024

Price: Free as an add-on to registration

Whether building a persuasive narrative for a lawmaker, communicating with a project developer, or explaining a concept to a reporter, advocacy and communications skills are important for civil engineers. This workshop, led by ASCE’s Government Relations team, will offer an overview of the factors involved in advocacy and media relations, and provide skills and strategies to improve effective communication. These skills are as valuable in a Congressional office as they are in a board room, and this session represents a significant ASCE member benefit that ICTD attendees can partake in. 

Join ASCE’s Government Relations staff for an interactive and informative workshop that taps into the wealth of experience the Government Relations team has in government advocacy and media relations. Participants will learn how to elevate their public policy presence through the use of ASCE resources and receive guidance for working with the media. Familiarity with ASCE’s Legislative Priorities and strong communication skills are key to success in the engineering practice, and this session will help attendees prepare to successfully promote the profession. Additionally, the session will include information on key transportation-related legislation and opportunities to engage with federal programs, including those supported by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act.
