Each year, thousands of civil engineering professionals participate in ASCE’s activities by volunteering their technical and professional expertise in support of the Society’s vision and mission to advance the practice of civil engineering.

  • Service on an ASCE committee is just one of the many ways in which you can give back to the profession.   Selected applicants are subject to approval by the Board of Direction in July.    Constituent Committee members are approved by the respective Society Committee by September.  Committee assignments are effective at the conclusion of the Society's Annual Business Meeting, typically held in October.
  • Membership on Board, Society, Strategic Initiative, and Constituent Committees is limited to ASCE members in good standing unless an exception is granted. 
  • Composition of committees is designed to ensure a diverse membership.
  • Terms begin an end at the conclusion at the Society's Annual Business Meeting and are reconfirmed each year.
  • A typical term is three years but may be adjusted based on the Society's needs.
  • Reimbursement is available to members in good standing, based on the Society's travel policy.
  • The President-elect recommends for Board of Direction approval nominees for Board, Society and Strategic Initiative Committees.
