With the numerous organizations bidding for your time and resources, this is what ASHE can offer you.

Networking with other transportation professionals through monthly Section meetings and other social events.

Opportunities for continuing education and professional development through participation in Section meetins, Regional seminars and the annual National Conference.

Some presentation topics include:

  • Special or unique projects in our area

  • Innovations in roadway/bridge design, construction and/or materials
  • Construction and contract law
  • Procurement procedures and DBE requirements
  • Pavement and geometric design issues

  • Transportation planning & traffic operations
  • Pedestrian and cyclist accommodations

Community Service through local Section activities such as Adopt-A-Highway, Habitat for Humanity house projects and other charity events.

Promotion of the highway industry through active advertisement and legislative lobbying.

Membership at the Member level no matter what your position is. ASHE recognizes that everyone plays an important role in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of a successful transportation system and we welcome everyone involved in the industry to be a member.
