The Society

The American Society for Civil Engineers was founded in 1852 when a group of a dozen civil engineers came together to create an advocacy group that can lobby for the design and construction of the nation's infrastructure. 

The Society Holds confrences and events to raise awareness of the state of infrastructure in our nation. They also create a report card that grades infrasture systems by states, which they send to state and federal government agencies to tell them what to improve.

Priority Issues for 2016:

-Education of Civil Engineers

-Clean Water

-Transportation Infrastructure

-Sustainable Energy Use
