About ASCE & the Social Media Playbook

What is ASCE?

Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 145,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society. 

ASCE’s Mission

Provide essential value to our members and partners, advance civil engineering, and serve the public good.

In carrying out that mission, ASCE:

  • Advances technology 
  • Encourages lifelong learning 
  • Promotes professionalism and the profession 
  • Develops civil engineer leaders 
  • Advocates infrastructure and environmental stewardship  

What is the Social Media Playbook?

Social media is an important tool for ASCE members, and we’ve heard from hundreds of members and volunteer leaders like you who want to use social media as a tool to support one another and advance the civil engineering profession.

By working together—pooling our resources and coordinating social media across the organization—we’ll accomplish so much more. This playbook will help you by connecting you with existing resources and enabling you to build from the success of others.
