The 150,000-member American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) seeks an energetic, highly organized person with excellent communications and project management skills and an interest in infrastructure policy issues and public affairs to join our Washington, D.C. Government Relations and Infrastructure Initiatives staff.
Senior Manager – Infrastructure Initiatives. This position located in Washington, DC.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, infrastructure reached new prominence as a national policy issue. Now, just as the new presidential administration and 115th Congress potentially consider infrastructure legislation, ASCE is preparing to release its quadrennial Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, the preeminent report on the state of U.S. infrastructure, in March 2017. The Senior Manager of Infrastructure Initiatives will be an integral member of the team planning, finalizing, and executing the release of the 2017 Report Card, which is poised to be among the most referenced reports on infrastructure over the next four years, garnering tens of thousands of mentions in the media and by prominent elected officials.
In addition to supporting the national Report Card release and the related education and advocacy efforts, the Senior Manager of Infrastructure Initiatives oversees day-to-day management of ASCE’s State and Regional Infrastructure Report Card Program. Working with ASCE member sections and branches, s/he will assist in the development and release of state and regional Report Cards, in collaboration with ASCE’s media relations, state government relations, and grassroots staff.
The successful candidate will be detail-oriented with strong writing and speaking skills, project management experience, a baccalaureate degree, and at least five years professional experience, ideally with a professional society/trade association or working on policy issues. Experience in infrastructure policy and working with membership, the media, social media, and web content is a plus, but not required.
ASCE is a nonprofit professional membership association dedicated to the advancement of civil engineering to serve the public good.
To accomplish ASCE’s mission, ASCE staff works together as a team, based on a foundation of trust, striving for individual and organizational excellence. To achieve our shared goals, we maintain a relentless focus on members and a commitment to continuously grow and improve individually and collectively.
