Plot Points is a podcast by ASCE that tells the robust story of civil engineering one episode at a time. The podcast is in Season 3 and is looking for answers for their Member Memo questions. An upcoming question is the following: How do you combine policy with your civil engineering work?
If interested in a chance to be featured on a future episode of the podcast, record your answer as a voice memo on your phone (60 seconds or so) and email it to ascenews (at ) asce.org with "Member Memo" in the subject line! I submitted an answer to one of the featured questions during Season 1 so feel free to respond here or message me with any questions about the process.I personally have combined policy with my civil engineering work by serving as a contributing author for the 2018 PA Infrastructure Report Card. You can view the full report here: Report Card for Pennsylvania's Infrastructure - 2018. I hope to increase my efforts by attending the ASCE Legislative Fly-In Program in the next year or so.
If not interested in recording a voice memo for the podcast, I would love to hear about how you combine policy with your civil engineering work below! Also if you have attended the ASCE Legislative Fly-In Program, I would love to hear about your experience below as well!
