Welcome to The Leader Training Committee of the American Society of Civil Engineers


Welcome to the Leader Training Committee’s Website!

Message from the Chair

November 2018


I’m excited to start my term as the Chair of the Leader Training Committee this fall. I’ve been a member of ASCE since I was a student in 2001, and from the beginning, I was so impressed with the resources, training, and events that the Society provided for its members. I had the opportunity to attend an MRLC early in my ASCE career, and a few years later we hosted one in Maine. For me to have the opportunity to help plan these types of events brings it all full circle.

Throughout my term as chair of LTC, I plan to update this welcome with highlights of the leadership events and resources that we offer throughout the year. For this first note, I want to talk about the human resource!! The nine members of LTC are a group of hardworking people who have served in a variety of leadership roles around the country – Past Section and Branch Presidents, Past Region Governors and Directors, and Past Chairs of a variety of other ASCE Committees at different levels in the society. Over the last few years, we’ve had representatives from all of ASCE’s domestic regions. Our range of experiences come together to make a great group! We also have a great staff resource within Geographic Services! Everyone knows Nancy, and she has a super staff backing her up. These volunteers and staff are the people who put together most of the resources you’ll find on this page.

I hope that you spend some timing taking a look through the resources available on this website, and that you find something that will be useful to you, whether it’s a Best Practice, or a Talking Point, or a copy of a webinar that you may have missed. A lot of thought has gone into the materials that are available, but we are always looking for feedback on what we can improve. If you know that something is missing, or could be improved to serve you better, let us know! Also, be sure to become a member of our Facebook Page, where you can find updates about our upcoming events, post about your own activities, and share questions and ideas with other Sections and Branches.

Over the next three years, I’ll be updating this with highlights of what we’re working on, so make sure you check back in. Thanks for all you do for ASCE!
