ASCE Region 9 membership is following up on its May 2017 Legislative Fly-In Event, with a Drive-In Week where ASCE members in Region 9 will visit their Legislators in their District offices.  During the week of October 23-27, ASCE members in Region 9 are encouraged to schedule two visits with their Assembly Members and State Senators, to reinforce ASCE’s message that "Infrastructure Pays”, explain our core values and policy goals, and make what we hope will be long lasting inter-personal connections, to engage with legislative decision-makers on issues that affect civil engineers and the built environment.

ASCE Region 9 staff can assist you with identifying your Legislators, as well as provide you with information on at least two or more ASCE members who are your fellow constituents, so you can coordinate these meetings with legislators on your own.  You will subsequently then need to make your own appointments to fit your calendar and those of your legislators. You can find your representatives by visiting http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/

The selected dates for the Drive-In are October 23-27.  However, if this time frame does not fit you schedule, we would still encourage you to make appointments that match your schedule and that of your legislators during the month of October.  

ASCE will provide talking points and additional guidance, including possibly scheduling a webinar to discuss the Drive-In, during the month of October.  Please contact Richard Markuson, ASCE Region 9 Legislative Advocate, richard@pacificadvocacygroup.com, if you have any questions regarding the 2017 ASCE Region 9 Drive-In.
