Legislative Fly-in

  • Are you an ASCE member interested in walking the halls of Capitol Hill and learning firsthand how policy is crafted?

  • Every spring, ASCE holds its Legislative Fly-In Program in Washington, DC, an intensive two-day program that provides participants with an inside look at the public policy process. At the 2019 event, over 250 ASCE members visited over 360 Congressional offices (that includes nearly two-thirds of the House of Representatives), advocating for a 25-cent per gallon motor fuels tax increase to help fix the Federal Highway Trust Fund, full funding of key infrastructure programs in FY2020 and urged Members of Congress to follow ASCE’s Principles for Investment as they draft a bipartisan infrastructure bill as well as urging Members of Congress to draft a comprehensive infrastructure bill. 

    2020 Fly-In

    This year's event was scheduled to take place on March 11–12, 2020 in Washington, D.C.. The Fly-in program includes: 

    • Meetings on the Hill with your Members of Congress or their staff
    • Briefing sessions on key legislation active in Congress and ASCE's legislative priorities.
    • Training on lobbying and influencing your elected leaders — including pre-event webinars
    • Networking with your ASCE peers from across the country
    • A Younger Member Program
    • Tips on continuing relationships with your elected officials once you return home

    We will open the application process for the 2021 Legislative Fly-In in October 2020. No fee is required to apply.  A registration fee will be collected during the registration process once you have been selected to attend the Legislative Fly-In. ASCE Government Relations offers a limited number of travel awards to help defray some travel costs. The remaining travel costs are the responsibility of the attendee.
