Today on the WAM podcast, Frances Brunelle speaks with Emily Feenstra, the Managing Director of Government Relations and Infrastructure Initiatives at the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Emily leads the division responsible for government affairs, media relations, and infrastructure policy for the society, including ASCE’s Infrastructure Report Card, which we learn more about in today’s episode. She also serves on the board of advisors for the Eno Center for Transportation and the Innovative Infrastructure Initiative. In today’s episode, Emily elaborates on why we should be investing in infrastructure for the future and some of the negative implications for America’s economic growth if we continue with the status quo as it is. We touch on Emily’s role as a storyteller, the recent Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and how manufacturers can benefit from it, plus so much more! Tune in today.
