Hotel Security/Staff will respond immediately to your location. For life-threatening emergencies, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or severe abdominal pain call 911.
Meeting Room Overcrowding
ASCE/G-I will make every effort to schedule popular events in rooms large enough to accommodate anticipated attendance. Because many events are extremely popular, it is wise to select alternative events as you plan your Conference schedule ASCE/G-I and the host facilities are REQUIRED to follow local fire regulations and may ask participants in rooms at capacity to choose another event.
No Smoking/ Vaping
ASCE/G-I supports a “No Smoking/ Vaping” policy. Smoking/Vaping is prohibited in all venues hosting ASCE events.
Professional Development Hours (PDHs)
By attending certain conference sessions, technical tours, and seminars, you may earn PDHs, which are nationally recognized units of record. Please note there are differences from state to state in continuing education requirements for professional engineering licensure. Each state licensing board has the final authority to approve courses, credits, PDHs, and other methods of earning credits in that state. ASCE/G-I strongly recommends that individuals regularly check with their state licensing boards for specific continuing education requirements in their jurisdictions that affect professional engineering licensure and the ability to renew licensure.
When you arrive at the registration desk to pick up your badge and tickets, you will receive a badge with your name and a bar code specific to your registration. Before you enter the room for a pre-conference short course, technical session, panel session, plenary session, etc., you must scan your bar code in order to receive credit. The scanner will acknowledge a successful recording of your name for the specific session. We strongly recommend you scan your badge at the beginning of each session to eliminate any challenges and/or lines later. Please note that the only way to receive PDH credits is if you scan your bar code at the start of each session.
