I would like to start a discussion regarding advocacy and civil engineering. My personal involvement in government relations began in December 2017 when I served as a category contributor for the 2018 PA Report Card. Although it involved a great deal of work reviewing articles, reports, and many iterations of drafts to get to the final publication and grade, I found this role extremely beneficial in learning more about what metrics are vital to include when summarizing the current state of our state's infrastructure. It is also great to know that this report card is being used by ASCE members when they meet with elected officials. I am also an ASCE Key Contact which I highly recommend that every ASCE member join. You can learn more about the program here: https://www.asce.org/keycontacts/
I would like to hear from you all. How do you combine advocacy with your civil engineering work?
