Getting Started Checklist

Before you start a new social media effort—or before you go any further with what you’ve already started—follow this checklist to ensure you are meeting the expectations of ASCE and our members.

Get familiar with ASCE social media

When you’re getting started, it’s important to spend some time getting familiar with the existing community. Looking at what works for other sections, branches, Institutes, younger member groups, and student chapters will help you evaluate which platform(s) to use to reach your goals.

Connect with ASCE on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.

Review ASCE’s social media expectations

To protect the reputation of ASCE and its sections and branches, it is important to review the expectations of ASCE branded social media groups. Additionally, review the rules of engagement governing anyone who participates on an ASCE social media site. You are expected to post and enforce these rules on any ASCE social media site you manage. If you are an ASCE employee or contractor contributing to any kind of social media both on and off ASCE affiliated websites, these policies are also for you.

Submit a Social Media Request Form

From picking a platform to defining your social media goals, the social media team is an invaluable resource to tap from the very first inkling that you might like to use social media to engage other members and civil engineers. Fill out a social media request form so that we can review your request and help you get started.
