Publications: the dissemination of technical and professional information to asce members and others in the Civil engineering profession is a major goal of the Society and the primary goal of the Society's publishing program. This is accomplished through a variety of publications and information products, including 35 technical and professional journals, Civil engineering magazine, an online bibliographic database, conference proceedings, standards, and technical reports.
Membership services: in addition to developing members, providing value to existing members, engaging and retaining student members, promoting member accomplishments and marketing the Society's products to members, membership conducts research on member needs and satisfaction, provides career resources including a salary survey and associated publication on Civil engineering income as well as an online mentoring program. Membership also works with various service providers to offer asce members special insurance and financial programs.
Engineering programs: the Society's engineering programs division directly supports the Society's purpose of advancing the science of engineering by producing technical content for publications, conferences and continuing education programs. The division consists of nine discipline specific institutes and six technical groups. The work of the division is accomplished by members participating in more than 700 technical committees. The division has responsibility for oversight of the editorial boards of 28 of asce's 35 journals. Each year the division holds more than a dozen congresses and specialty conferences. Both asce members and non-members are eligible for membership in the institutes.
